Abstract: A tsunami of astronomical data is fast approaching. New survey programs will dwarf any data sets that have come before. Observatoriesí data storage costs will threaten their budgets. Data transport latency and bandwidth will threaten not just budgets, but available technology and human patience. Under such circumstances, projects will increasingly rely on data compression as a technique necessary to meet requirements of acceptable throughput and affordable data handling.
