The navigation in complex 3D-models is complicated because of two circumstances. First the huge amount of 3D-data slows down the interaction and second the variety of details is likely to overload the cognitive capabilities of the viewer. In such a situation relevant details are often difficult to find. This paper describes an interactive version of the level-of-detail concept (LOD) to speed up the visualization process and to reduce irrelevant details at the same time.
