Abstract We introduce a new distortion measure for point processes called functional-covering distortion. It is inspired by intensity theory and is related to both the covering of point processes and the logarithmic-loss distortion. We obtain the distortion-rate function with feedforward under this distortion measure for a large class of point processes. For Poisson processes, we characterize the rate-distortion region for a two-encoder CEO problem and show that feedforward does not improve this region.
