In this paper, we present a novel edge-based coding algorithm for image compression. The proposed coding scheme is the predictive version of the original algorithm, which we presented earlier in literature. In the original version, an image is block coded according to the level of visual activity of individual blocks, following a novel edge-oriented classification stage. Each block is then represented by a set of parameters associated with the pattern appearing inside the block. The use of these parameters at the receiver reduces the cost of reconstruction significantly. In the present study, we extend and improve the performance of the existing technique by exploiting the expected spatial redundancy across the neighboring blocks. Satisfactory coded images at competitive bit rate with other block-based coding techniques have been obtained.
