Deformation Models for Dynamic Terrain Visualization

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 126)


In this paper, we present a deformation model generation algorithm for dynamic terrain visualization. In our approach, the general process of the deformation model construction and its incorporation into the original multi-resolution model of the terrain surface is described. We also develop a representative deformation model of the tire track for dynamic terrain visualization. The deformation model is well-suited for the application of real-time terrain rendering because of the simple construction procedure and realistic visualization result.
