  • The Web has become a new medium which can display geographical information in rich forms and offer user-friendly interfaces. One of the promising trends in current Geographical Information System (GIS) is the use of Web 3D technology, especially VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling language). As one of the most fundamental geographical information, terrain information is often presented as the base for the display of other information, such as urban buildings, streets, population density… CONTINUE READING
