- VWorldTerrain Technology -
VWorldTerrain is a software technology based an original concept of procedural calculations which is tailor-made for real-time 3D terrain rendering.
That technology is the fruit of a ten-year-long development work, and it has already been used in various fields, such as video games, edutainment or advanced technologies research.
VWorldTerrain technology is based on a principle of dynamic creation of data in real-time, which is quite challenging compared to traditional techniques, which display 3D universes while integrating already modeled items.
To obtain such results, VWorldTerrain makes use of various satellite databases:
On top of that, there are other sets of data (already existing or, if need be, created for the occasion), such as information on cloud cover, rainfall, temperatures, force and direction of winds…that we use to give an even greater realism to the landscape and reproduce meteorological phenomena in a completely dynamic way ( wind, snow, rain, mist, sandstorms…).
therefore reads and interprets all these databases in real-time and simultaneously
creates a three-dimensional universe.
The selfsame functions are used to generate landscapes with an extremely high definition, since not only does the engine make use of all the information contained in the databases but it also extrapolates missing data, so as to reach an impressive level of detail; in addition to that, the rendering varies according to the distance of the observer (depth of field), so as to comply with the calculations capabilities of each personal computer.
The implementation of architectural elements in the environment generated by the engine follows the same rules, so as to adjust the level of detail according to the (more or less remote) position of the observer.
