Elements of urban terrain models such as streets, pavements, lawns, walls, and fences are fundamental for effective recognition and convincing appearance of virtual 3D cities and virtual 3D landscapes. These elements complement important other components such as 3D building models and 3D vegetation models. This paper introduces an object-oriented, rule-based and heuristic-based approach for modeling detailed virtual 3D terrains in an automated way. Terrain models are derived from 2D vector… CONTINUE READING
