Abstract in different language: We present a basic data structure for geometric data which can be adapted to represent common geometry representations like CSG, BSP, aso. The new data structure has been designed to be easy to use, and easy to extend. Due to the representation of geometric data using a directed acyclic graph, a number of the standard rendering algorithms can be used on the data structure in a very straightforward way. The new data structure has been implemented as a C++ library and can therefore serve as high-level tool for developing graphics applications, or as an extension for using C++ as a modeling language. As an additional benefit this new basic data structure captures the similarities of the indicated geometry representations, and thus leas to significant code reuse.
