title A Hierarchical Data Structure for Multidimensional Digital Images
source Communications of the ACM. July, 1983. vol. 26: pp. 504-515 : ill. includes bibliography
summary A tree data structure for representing multidimensional digital binary images is described. The method is based on recursive subdivision of the d-dimensional space into 2d hyperoctants. An algorithm for constructing the tree of a d- dimensional binary image from the tree of its (d-1)- dimensional cross sections is given. The computational advantages of the data structure and the algorithm are demonstrated both theoretically and in application to a three-dimensional reconstruction of a human brain
