MetaVR Camp Pendleton MOUT Sites

For use by participants in the Operation Blended Warrior (OBW) LVC event at I/ITSEC 2016, MetaVR built a high-resolution geospecific Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, CA, terrain data set with two detailed modeled MOUT sites (Combat Town 25 and Kilo 2).

MetaVR recently delivered this terrain for use with Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) in the U.S. Navy Combined Arms Virtual Environment (CAVE) simulator at the Expeditionary Warfare Training Group, Pacific (EWTGPAC) facility at Naval Amphibious Base, Coronado, CA.

The terrain runs at 60 Hz in VRSG version 6.2. The 24 sq km virtual round-earth terrain of Camp Pendleton was built with 30 cm per-pixel resolution USGS satellite imagery and 60 cm LIDAR elevation data blended to 10 meter NED, and geometric water shoreline.

The OBW terrain also covers vast portions of CA, AZ, and NV, at 1 meter per pixel NAIP imagery (2014-2015) and 10 meter post elevation data. In addition to the 2 MOUT sites, another area of interest on the terrain is the modeled Los Alamitos (KSLI) airport.

Geospecific buildings are comprised of mobile containers and concrete buildings with interiors.

Other culture includes fences, stones, dumpsters, grass, vegetation, powerlines, street signs, climbing structures, bleachers, trees, grave yard, mosque, observation tower, gas station, market area, and a castle.

The terrain was built in forthcoming version 1.4 of MetaVR Terrain Tools for Esri ArcGIS®, which has the ability to blend multiple microtextures. For example, the terrain includes built-in roads (dirt, gravel, and paved) with blended microtextures (grass, swale, red clay soil, gravel, brown soil-grass). The georeferenced 4K microtextures are assigned to the terrain by digitizing and assigning specific land classification textures to geospecific polygons resulting in 4 mm per-pixel effective resolution.

The Camp Pendleton terrain dataset is available on MetaVR's CONUS ++ Southwestern region 3D terrain. The CONUS++ 3D terrain, in round-earth Metadesic format, is available for purchase to all MetaVR customers who are on active VRSG software maintenance and are US Government agencies or contractors (for official use only). For US-domestic use only, not available for export. The terrain can be viewed only with a valid VRSG version 6.1 or greater software license with valid software maintenance.
