Information about existing files in archives

Compression Analysis on 3.9 Mio existing TIFF files in Swiss archives

In collaboration with Swiss Federal Archive and its Coordination Committee for sustainable archival of digital documents (KOST, kost-ceco.ch) and thanks to the effort of Martin Kaiser I would like to present this table to you all.

It shows the amount of files of the Archive of Basel, Swiss Federal Archive (BAR) and St. Gallen which sum up to 3.9 Million TIFF files and give a good frame to the discussion of compression. Thanks to the KOST this figures exist for the first time.

Please discuss the topic compression under the post compression (if possible)

Thanks
