Transformation in Scale for Continuous Zooming [chapter]

Zhilin Li, Haowen Yan
2019 Manual of Digital Earth  
This chapter summarizes the theories and methods in continuous zooming for Digital Earth. It introduces the basic concepts of and issues in continuous zooming and transformation in scale (or multiscale transformation). It presents the theories of transformation in scale, including the concepts of multiscale versus variable scale, transformation in the Euclidean space versus the geographical space, and the theoretical foundation for transformation in scale, the Natural Principle. It addresses

It also discusses the mathematical solutions to transformations in scale (including upscaling and downscaling) for both raster (numerical and categorical data) and vector (point set data, line data set and area data) data. In addition, some concluding remarks are provided.
