This thesis investigates the three dimensional visualization of geography related statistical data, organized in different abstraction levels considering their distance to camera. If the aim is to tell a story about place (linked with geography), thematic maps are said to be one of the most generic methods. With the help of texturing technology, two dimensional thematic maps are generated in real time and projected on a predefined terrain. Introducing level of detail for data abstraction with respect to camera movements advanced the system into a multiscale visualization.
