<p>Two basic components are required for generating a geometric fractal: an initiator and a generator. Multiple traversal strategies for both initiator and generator segments are proposed. It is shown how to generate many fractal images by changing the traversal strategies for the given initiator and/or generator. These fractals are referred to as traversed geometric fractals. A notation for representing and identifying segments of the initiator and the generator is presented. This notation is essential in producing traversed geometric fractals and deriving their properties. The generators are classified into various categories useful in analyzing the generated fractals' visual features.</p>
