Data squashing, Advanced Statistics

An approach to decrease the size of very large data sets in which the data are first 'binned' and then statistics such as the mean and variance/covariance are calculated on each bin. These statistics are then used to obtain a new sample in each bin to construct a reduced data set with the similar statistical properties to original one.
