In this thesis, we describe a new framework for client-server isosurfacing on volumetric data. Regions of the data set that contain no visible part of the isosurface are determined on the server. The visible regions of the data set are then transferred to the client for isosurfacing. In addition, the framework transfers some non-visible regions to the client that may become visible when the viewpoint changes. Experimental results for application of the framework to volumetric data are also presented here.
