What is the compact way of storing a sparse matrix that allows to iterate over each row and each column efficiently?

The Wikipedia article on the subject mentions several ways to build data structures for sparse matrices, partly exploiting the actual structure of the matrix to represent. There doesn't seem to be a canonical way for representation which is suitable for all kinds of matrices.
