ABSTRACT
The currently observed exponentially increasing size of 3D models prohibits rendering them using brute force methods. Researchers have proposed various outputsensitive rendering algorithms to overcome this challenge. This article provides an overview of this technology.
INDEX TERMS
real-time rendering, massive model visualization
