When approximating the shape of a region, a fixed bound on the tolerable distortion is set for approximating its contour points. In this work, an adaptive approximation bound for lossy coding of the contour points is proposed. A function representing the relative significance of the contour points is defined to adjust the distortion bound along the region contour allowing an adaptive approximation of the region shape. The effectiveness of the adaptive contour coding approach for a region-based coding system is verified through experiments.
