The paper deals with the problem of analyzing and visualizing large-size volume data sets. To this aim, we consider multiresolution representations based on a decomposition of the field domain into tetrahedral cells. We compare two types of multiresolution representations that differ on the rule applied to refine an initial coarse mesh: one is based on tetrahedron bisection, and one based on vertex split. The two representations can be viewed as instances of a common multiresolution model, that we call a multiresolution mesh. Encoding data structures for the two representations are briefly described. An experimental comparison on structured volume data sets is presented.
