Abstract: SpIOMM, the Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer of the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic generates huge files of about 700 MB per file on average, and SITELLE, its successor will generate files of a few GB. Since several files can be generated during an observation night and the astronomers are not always on-site, there is an increasing need for both storage and transmission. To minimize storage space, bandwidth use and transmission time, three data compression techniques are presented. The first two techniques are lossless data compression and the third one is lossy. The lossless techniques give better results than generic techniques that are zip and gzip2, with compression ratios varying from 1:19 : 1 to 1:22 : 1. The lossy technique compresses files up to a 64 : 1 ratio. The effect of the lossy process on the photometric measurements and the spectra analysis is also studied.
