This paper describes a general framework for out-of-core rendering and management of massive terrain surfaces. The two key components of this framework are: view-dependent refinement of the terrain mesh; and a simple scheme for organizing the terrain data to improve coherence and reduce the number of paging events from external storage to main memory. Similar to several previously proposed methods for viewdependent refinement, we recursively subdivide a triangle mesh defined over regularly… CONTINUE READING
