Abstract [en]

Pictures, obeying geometric laws and depicting concrete physical objects, are increasingly important in education and working life in for example computer applications. But how do we chose among the wide range of modelling tools to get as realistic pictures as possible of the object? We are here trying to contribute to the discussion of this question. It is argued that realistic geometric pictures, which depict the same object under almost the same circumstances, must, apart from resembling the depicted physical object, also resemble each other. It is also claimed that one picture is more realistic than another, not primarily if it contains more information, but if the information is more accurate and representative. Arguments from the theory of aesthetic are here applied on the discussion of resemblance of geometric pictures.
