* The JOIN project

Efficiency of different raster set representations is studied. The key point of view is an amortized complexity of the JOIN operator used in front-to-back scene traversals. Each pixel of a raster window must not be processed more than once!

The JOIN operator computes both the DIFFERENCE (an area that needs processing) and the UNION (an update of the processed-mask). Several data structure organizatoins were tested (and some other are going to be tried in the future).
