Distributed geographic information systems typically handle large amounts of data; therefore the transmission and visualisation techniques used need to be scaleable to provide quick, interactive feedback. In this paper, we introduce such techniques based on the data hierarchy (levels of detail). Namely, we describe focus-and-context visualisation and progressive transmission. The main aim of this paper is to discuss the combination of these techniques for different data types and for mixture of these data types.
