Rapid Terrain Generation for GeoVisualization, Simulation, Mission Rehearsal, & Operations
United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation
Geospeciﬁc 3D terrain representation (aka reality modeling) is revolutionizing geovisualization, simulation, and engineering practices around the world. In tandem with the rapid growth in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and small satellites, reality modeling advancements now allow geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) practitioners to generate three-dimensional models from a decentralized collection of digital images to meet mission needs in both urban and rural environments.
