Abstract

There are many applications involving featured terrains visualization. One of them is for gaming purposes. However, when dealing with real data, many of this applications fail to cope with such information. So, this work presents an efficient way to minimize or even remove this kind of problem. We propose a method based on image-based rendering and view-dependent visualization techniques. These methods were applied in terrain visualization with real vegetation data where distribution and type is determined from digital satellite images.
