About this book

This book approaches the visualization of digital terrain and landscape data by means of clear and practical examples. From data provision and the creation of revealing analyses to realistic depictions for presentation purposes, the reader is led through the world of digital 3D graphics.

Combining deep knowledge of the scientific fundamentals and many years of experience in 3D visualization, the authors lead readers through a complex subject dynamically and shed light on previously murky virtual landscapes. Material on data evaluation and analysis, modeling, camera work and lighting, as well as the correct depiction of natural phenomena, atmospherical effects, and many tips for optimization make the book a valuable guide to a fascinating subject.
