MetaVR Virtual Yuma Proving Ground

MetaVR has built geospecific 2 cm per-pixel resolution 3D terrain of the Prospect Square area of U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground (YPG), Arizona.

The terrain imagery was captured by MetaVRC™, MetaVR's small UAV for imagery data collection. The MetaVRC was flown to take high-resolution still-frame images that were subsequently orthorectified and used for building 3D terrain for rendering in MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator™ (VRSG™).

The terrain, built in MetaVR's round-earth Metadesic format with MetaVR Terrain Tools for Esri® ArcGIS®, includes a replica of the SOTACC Village training site. The 2 cm resolution 3D terrain is blended with the overall YPG 3D terrain, which was built from 30 cm imagery of YPG and 2 to 10 meter elevation. The total area of YPG imagery coverage is 57 sq km.

Underlying virtual Yuma Proving Ground is MetaVR's CONUS ++ terrain, which was built with 1 meter per-pixel terrain imagery and DTED-1 elevation data.

At 2 cm resolution, details such as helicopter landing areas, vehicle targets, and small craters left from exploded ordnance are visible on the terrain and bullet holes are visible on targets. Content at this level of detail can be relevant and specific to various kinds of ground-level or air to ground simulation training.

Situated in southwestern Arizona, near the Arizona-California border in the Sonoran Desert, YPG is one of the largest military installations in the world, spanning 3,387.2 km². This multiple purpose test facility, the U.S.’s premier test facility, is part of the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command. Apart from the U.S., ten other nations use YPG for testing.  Specific proving ground capabilities include testing of: artillery, mortars, mines, ground and aircraft weapons, target acquisition and fire control systems, wheeled and tracked vehicles, and air delivery materiel, equipment, and techniques. The facility also contains a military reservation where weapon systems and military technology are tested.

The Yuma Proving Ground 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 software license with active software maintenance.
