A unifying framework for multilevel description of spatial data


Defining a unifying model for describing spatial data at different levels of resolution is a relevant issue in several applications involving spatial data handling. Also, dimension-independence is becoming fundamental in many application contexts. We propose a unifying model for multiresolution description of spatial data which works in arbitrary dimension. Graph-based representations for encoding different instances of the abstract model are described.
