The paper addresses multiresolutional representation of datasets arising from a computational field simulation. The approach determines the regions of interest, breaks the volume into variable size blocks to localize the information, and then codes each block using a wavelet transform. The blocks are then ranked by visual information content so that the most informative wavelet coefficients can be embedded in a bit stream for progressive transmission or access. The technique is demonstrated on a widely-used computational field simulation dataset.
