The geometry of "empty" scale space is investigated. Byvirtue of the proposed geometric axioms the generating PDE, the linearisotropic heat equation, can be presented in covariant, or geometricalform. The postulate of a metric for scale space cannot be upheld, asit is incompatible with the generating equation. Two familiar instancesof scale spaces consistent with the geometric axioms are considered byway of example, viz. classical, homogeneous scale space, and foveal scalespace.
