The problem of selecting anappropriate wavelet filter is always present in signal compression based on thewavelet transform. In this report, we propose a method to select a wavelet filter from a predefined set of filters for the compression of spectra from a multispectral image. The wavelet filter selection is based on the Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ). In the training phase for the test images, the best wavelet filter for each spectrum has been found by a careful compression-decompression evaluation. Certain spectral features are used in characterizing the pixel spectra. The LVQ is used to form the best wavelet filter class for different types of spectra from multispectral images. When a new image is to be compressed, a set of spectra from that image is selected, the spectra are classified by the trained LVQand the filter associated to the largest class is selected for the compression of every spectrum from the multispectral image. The results show, that almost inevery case our method finds the most suitable wavelet filter from the pre-defined set for the compression.
