    "The goal of VTP is to foster the creation of tools for easily constructing any part of the real world in interactive, 3D digital form.

    This goal will require a synergetic convergence of the fields of CAD, GIS, visual simulation, surveying and remote sensing. VTP gathers information and tracks progress in areas such as procedural scene construction, feature extraction, and rendering algorithms. VTP writes and supports a set of software tools, including an interactive runtime environment (VTP Enviro). The tools and their source code are freely shared to help accelerate the adoption and development of the necessary technologies."

  • Whether you choose to use the VTP software or not, the site is still a good place to start as it has a comprehensive directory of all the other known terrain modelling programs with thumbnail reviews (of the kind that mean something), and data and imagery sources.

     

    Coming soon, sometime this summer {x-fingers}, is the next major installment of the Yukon VTP, an piece of which can be seen at Matt's VTP homepage
