A computer generation method of elemental image for integral floating display, named as floated image mapping, is proposed. The concept of floated integral imaging system is introduced to overcome the problems coming from the conventional viewpoint of the integral floating display. Both analysis and experimental results which support and verify the functional contributions of the floated image mapping are presented. The expansion of expressible depth range and the reduction of computation time for the real time processing are main contributions of the proposed algorithm.
