Abstract
This paper describes an incremental transmission technique for displaying 3D imagery at different levels of detail and resolution. The objective of the technique developed is to allow a user to browse through imagery at a low resolution and zoom in only on specific features of interest. The technique described in this paper allows increasing the resolution and detail of the image by transmitting a relatively small amount of additional information and computing the new image locally in the display system. The need for systems with this capability is essential when (i) the resolution of the imagery exceeds the display resolution of the device, and (ii) a central file server on a network must transmit image-data to support several display devices.
