A semantic texture overlays semantic labels over an image to indicate the type of texture represented by each region of the image. Traditional lossy compression works well for color textures, but not for semantic textures. This disclosure describes lossless compression techniques to compress semantic textures, thereby reducing the memory occupied by semantic textures. The techniques leverage the observation that semantic textures, unlike color textures, are highly structured with large blocks of common values. The techniques enable high-speed access to detailed rendering and resolution in real-time computer graphics. They also enable additional textures or texture resolution, enhancing the detail and realism of rendering.
