VRML Topographical Map Generator
Entry ID: VRML

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Topographic Map Generator allows you to interactively generate VRML 2.0
scenes of topographic maps of the world. An example of topographic data used is
the ETOPO-5 dataset from the NOAA NGDC, a 5 arc minute resolution map of
topography and bathymetry for the entire Earth's surface. The surface can be
colored based on elevation, or texture-mapped with various other data sets. The
texture maps available are the biosphere, an AVHRR composite, the CIA World
Data Bank, and the topography data (using a texture map will allow higher
resolution coloring with a coarse grid).
