Class Information
Number: 345/587
Name: Computer graphics processing, operator interface processing, and selective visual display systems > Computer graphics processing > Attributes (surface detail or characteristic, display attributes) > Texture > Mip map
Description: Subject matter where there is a set of textures consisting of an original texture map and a number of smaller versions of this original texture map, each one half the size of the previous one, and where each texture map is filtered to be smoother than the previous version, so that as the view point gets further away from the texture mapped object; the smaller the version of said MIP map is used to represent the texture.
