Using formal analysis of parallel and perspective viewing transformation behavior, closed-form form expressions are obtained for immediate evaluation of maximum, minimum, and average scales at a given point in space. While these are constant for parallel transformations, they vary from point to point for perspective transformations. The average scale of a transformation is expressed in ways useful for heuristic computations. The expressions indicate how transformations perform in general without providing guarantees. It is shown that these results apply to the dynamic tessellation of curved surfaces. The maximum scale of a transformation across a bounded region can guarantee that one will meet postviewing approximation thresholds specified in display coordinates, based on derivative bounds precomputed in modeling coordinates.<>
