Abstract: Terrain crack removal is an unavoidable problem that must be solved in real-time three-dimensional (3D) terrain rendering. Conventional elevation adjustment-based crack removal methods are plagued by a number of problems, including restrictions associated with level of detail (LoD) differences, computational inefficiency and lighting discontinuities. To address these issues, we propose a crack elimination method that is suited for large differences in boundary LoD. The first step in this method is the construction of terrain quadtrees that contain edge and angle adjacency information. These structures are then updated in real time. The second step is to modify the boundary mesh vertices using linear interpolation, which allows for LoD differences greater than 1 between adjacent tiles. Finally, the vertex normals of the mesh vertices of the terrain block are calculated and evaluated. Our method was experimentally validated using topographical data from a mountainous region in Sichuan P rovince, and the results provide evidence that supports the reliability and superiority of the proposed method compared to the conventional method.
