When every domain element can be expressed as the union of range elements, fractal image compression produces a structure equivalent to a recurrent iterated function system. This equivalence broadens the scope of the recurrent iterated function system, enabling it to represent arbitrary shapes. The RIFS representation encodes bitmaps better than standard fractal image compression, and supports further processing such as edge detection and escape time visualization.
