SATELLITE IMAGE TRANSFERRING IN DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS: COMPARISON OF RASTER AND VECTOR REPRESENTATION
Distributed image processing applications are constrained by the limited network bandwidth and huge image sizes. On the other hand, in some cases, applications containing images include spatial and topological queries not requiring pixel-based information. In such applications, using vector representations of raster images is expected to give better performance results. In this paper, we setup a scenario to transfer a Landsat Gokceada satellite image from one machine to another through web services. We perform the tests for both vector and raster forms of the same image and analyze transmission and response times.
