Abstract. This document presents a novel method for visual representation of mutual objects location (relative to each other) in 3D. The motivation and inspiration for such a work come from chromosome territory (CT) adjacency analysis. This paper describes: the idea of the cone of sight (CoS), with an explanation of the origin of such approach; the way a mathematical model of CoS was build and a process of a space segmentation with CoSes. Next, the way how distance-profile charts (DPCs) are designed and created was described and, finally showing DPC on the exemplary dataset. Finally, some conclusions were presented.
