Adam7

(graphics, algorithm)   One of the progressive coding methods used in PNG images. Adam7, named after its author, Adam M. Costello, consists of seven distinct passes over the image. Each pass transmits a subset of the pixels in the image. The pass in which each pixel is transmitted is defined by replicating the following 8-by-8 pattern over the entire image, starting at the top left:

 1 6 4 6 2 6 4 6
 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
 5 6 5 6 5 6 5 6
 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
 3 6 4 6 3 6 4 6
 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
 5 6 5 6 5 6 5 6
 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
