Grouping Voxels with Hilbert Curves

A friend suggested quite a good idea.

Represent Voxels internally using a Hilbert Curve, the same algorithm XKCD used to display a map of IPv4.

Once you’ve got this, you can perform an RLE compression algorithm to it.

 

This paper discusses using Octrees and Hilbert curves to represent masses of voxel data.
