Interactive rendering of large scale vector maps is a key challenge for high-quality geographic visualization software systems. In this paper we present a novel approach for the visualization of large scale vector maps over detailed height-field terrains. Our method uses a deferred line shading approach to render large scale vector maps directly in a screen-space shading stage over a terrain visualization. The fact that there is no traditional geometric polygonal rendering involved allows our… CONTINUE READING
