Abstract

A method for generating a vario-scale visual representation of n-dimensional objects (together forming a space partition) is presented comprising the steps of - generating a higher and a lower detailed n-dimensional object representation each comprising digital data representing objects by zones in said n-dimensional object representations, said zones being delimited by (n-1)-dimensional boundaries having at least one boundary segment, - positioning the higher and lower detailed object representation in an (n+1)-dimensional space, having in addition to the dimensions of the n-dimensional object representations an additional dimension, wherein the higher and the lower detailed n-dimensional object representations are assigned a first and a second value for said additional dimension respectively, - constructing an (n+1); -dimensional object representation by creating trans-scale boundary segments between mutually corresponding boundary segments in the higher detailed and the lower detailed n-dimensional representation, - determining an intermediate n-dimensional representation by calculating a cross-section between an n-dimensional slicing object and the constructed trans-scale boundaries.
