What does the surrounding and the horizon look like from a given viewpoint?
This example uses high resolution data:
||This is the map that is used as the texture. It was
created by blending:
- NLCD 1992 Land Cover data; the light specks show forest
- TruFlite elevation-to-color data; the general coloring
(green-yellow-brown) using one of TruFlite's predefined palette
- Tiger Census data; all road lines and names.
The red dot is the viewpoint from which the horizon is to be
rendered. The blue letters are used to indicate the viewing direction.
||This is a 3D view of the whole landscape; looking
north. The terrain has been vertically exaggerated by a factor of 4.
Even Scotts Flat Dam can be seen at the left (west) end of the lake!
And these are the views as seen from the center of the red dot.
blue letters draped over the terrain indicate the viewing direction.
