Abstract: Image compression algorithms have evolved into some of the most complex structures in computing. Yet at the core of these algorithms are simple techniques that have been long known about data compression. This paper explores some of the fundamental techniques behind bi-level (black and white) image compression that have set the bar for much of the compression standards in existence today. More specifically, the paper focuses on compression techniques developed for the fax machine, for that development marked a turning point in the standardization of image compression techniques.
