Effective archive of large documents requires the ability to retrieve and browse, process, distribute, and display and print at high quality. To do so efficiently, it is desirable to access only portions of a document file that pertain to any given task. For example, retrieval might be facilitated by quick access to keywords, text, and metadata. Browsing only requires portions of a document data for viewing. High quality display and printing require different resolutions and bit-rates. Such access is key for documents whether they are stored in image form or in a page description language.This paper presents the philosophy of progressive network access for document images embodied in the JPEG 2000 family of standards. A discussion of the partial document image data needs for certain archive and retrieval tasks is discussed. Performance measures compare JPEG against JPEG 2000 continuous-tone compression with the JPM file format and the JPIP interactive protocol for various client-sever document imaging tasks.
