3D Terrain

This real-time VRSG video is a flyover demonstration that features an F-16 entity in flight over geospecific virtual Kleine-Brogel Air Base, Belgium, and the surrounding urban environment. The virtual terrain was built in our round-earth Metadesic™ terrain format with MetaVR Terrain Tools for Esri® ArcGIS® from 10 cm per-pixel resolution source imagery of the air base blended into 40 cm imagery of the surrounding Flanders region. Elevation source data was DTED2. The air base culture includes a runway, taxiways, tarmacs, runway lights, signage, antennas, instruments, and several geospecific models of the control tower and other air base buildings. The air base models were built from publicly available photos and then geolocated on the terrain in VRSG Scenario Editor. The surrounding culture of 98,000 building models was generated in Esri CityEngine® from OpenStreetMap data with emissive light-map textures for nighttime lighting, and then exported as a large culture model in FBX file format, and then converted to MetaVR’s model format. The terrain also contains 389,000 tree models and, for simulating night scenes, thousands of cultural light points.
