What Is Depth Sorting Method In Visualization?

An algorithm for creating a hidden-line drawing of polygon data sets by drawing the polygons from the most distant to the closest, in order.

  • Both image and object space operations.
  • Perform the basic function.
  • Surface are sorted in order of decreasing depth.
  • Surface are scan converted in order, starting with the surface of greatest depth.
  • Often referred as painters algorithm.
  • Test listed in the order of increasing difficulty.
  • Surface do not overlap.
  • Projections of the two surfaces on to the view plane do not overlap.
