Imagery must be adequately processed and adapted to be used in mobile environments. This contribution shows that this can be reached by a rigorous combination of all stages of the image communication pipeline to a single system aligned to a pre-defined task. To achieve this, the modern imaging standard JPEG2000 serves as a foundation for image compression and streaming. Founded on the concept of Regions of Interest and Levels of Detail to describe current demands at client side, powerful generic strategies for the content handling are proposed. The pre-defined task at client side is represented by one of 3 common problems – image browsing, viewer guidance, and content exchange. Beside new ideas to accomplish these tasks on application level, in focus is the strong decrease in the resource requirements resulting from an appropriate image handling. The achieved results show that many resources can be saved by an appropriate image communication using JPEG2000.
