I'm tryng to classify each compression algorithm based upon their features, i've thinked:

  • Compression algorithm
    • Lossless algorithm
      • Batched algorithm
        • Rinex
    • Lossy algorithm
      • Batched algorithm
        • Uniform sampling
        • Douglas-Peucker
        • Bellman
      • Online algorithm
        • Opening window
      • Hybrid algorithm
        • Threshold algorithm

Do you agree with me? How can I improve this chart? The main division is among lossless and lossy or batched and online? Exist an online lossless algorithm?

Best regard
