Concepto de escala y sistemas digitales (The concept of scale and digital systems)
SIGraDi 2003 - [Proceedings of the 7th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Rosario Argentina 5-7 november 2003
The concept of scale can have different interpretations. In this paper the idea of scale as a regulator of abstraction levels is discussed in connection with the concept of representation. It is suggested that the appropriate design scaling can play a role quite more far reaching than when it is used just to adjust the size of drawings to fit the limits of a graphic support.
