In this paper, we focus on quality-assured lossy compression of HSI, where the accuracy of analysis from decoded data is taken as a key criterion to assess the efficacy of coding. An improved 3D Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) based approach is proposed, where a Support Vector Machine (SVM) is applied to optimally determine the weighting of inter-band correlation within the quantisation matrix. In addition to the conventional quantitative metrics Signalto-Noise Ratio (SNR) and Structural Similarity (SSIM) for performance assessment, the classification accuracy on decoded data from the SVM is adopted for quality-assured evaluation, where the Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees (SPIHT) method with 3D Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is used for benchmarking. Results on four publically available HSI datasets have indicated that our approach outperforms SPIHT in both subjective (qualitative) and objective (quantitative) assessments for land cover analysis in remote sensing applications. Moreover, our approach is more efficient and generates much reduced degradation for subsequent data classification hence provides a more efficient and quality-assured solution in effective compression of HSI.
