In this paper,we present an image-based technique for accelerated rendering of world in miniature-based (WIM ) and multiple viewpoint-based props. The WIM technique offers an intuitive and useful tool for navigation and manipulation within virtual environments.The multiple viewpoint technique is often applied for enhancing visualization and navigation. Unfortunately, both approaches require multiple rendering of the viewed data. This can significantly deteriorate the frame rate and negatively influence the interaction. The proposed approach circumvents this drawback, while still providing the features of these tools.
