A visualization framework for cloud rendering in global 3D GIS

Clouds are integral part in 3D-GIS visualization, without them 3D scene seem unrealistic. The paper presents a technical framework to simulate clouds from macroscopic to microcosmic scale in Global 3D-GIS. In the case of the macroscopic scale, which means the viewpoint is far away from the 3D scene in 3D-GIS, cloud was expressed with semi-transparent planar… CONTINUE READING
