Introduction

In this year’s Google Summer of Code program, I developed a module called terrainTools. This project is based on the 52°North Triturus library, which is extremely powerful and provides a lot of functionalities in the field of 3D geovisualization.

Most terrain based visualization applications in today’s world have different file formats that are difficult to export. In order to solve that problem, we have created terrainTools. Here, all visualization algorithms can be accessed from a web browser and can be shared seamlessly using Google’s services. This project is one of the few cloud based solutions to visualize terrain datasets with a three-dimensional viewpoint.

In this project, I demonstrate how Triturus can be used in day to day terrain applications. Using terrainTools, we can create elevation grids, visualize flooding applications, generate cross-section for a terrain and even calculate difference models!

Let’s get started!

Introduction

The 52°North Triturus library is extremely powerful and provides a lot of functionalities in the field of 3D geovisualization. This library is used in a lot of projects such as 52°North terrainServer and 52°North WorldViz. Currently, the terrainServer offers web-based services providing perspective terrain views. The project’s goal is to extend terrain model generation and analysis to practical scenarios in which it would be desirable to have web-based access to tools (e.g., difference surfaces, mass calculations, inclination analysis) and to model generation functions. These should use 52°North Triturus library. In the Google Summer of Code 2016 program, we shall try to achieve web-based access for some of these tools. This new module has been named ‘terrainTools’ and will be a standalone project. (more…)

Introduction

The Google Summer of Code for the year 2015, is over! And that was fast!

With the help of my August mentors, Benno Schmidt and Christian Danowski, I’ve been able to make some good progress towards building the WorldViz connection map module. This blog post is a continuation of my previous blog post which can be found here.
