MIP Mapping

(pronounced: mip-mapping)

A sophisticated texturing technique used for 3-D animation in games and CAD walkthroughs. To create scenery that contains acutely angled polygons that disappear into the distance, MIP mapping mixes high and low resolution versions of the same texture to reduce the jagged effect (or "the jaggies") that would otherwise appear.
