Summary
Abstract: The goal of Virtual Terrain Project (VTP) is to foster the creation of tools
for easily constructing any part of the real world in interactive, 3D digital
form.

This goal will require a synergetic convergence of the fields of CAD, GIS,
visual simulation, surveying and remote sensing. VTP gathers information and
tracks progress in areas such as procedural scene construction, feature
extraction, and rendering algorithms. VTP writes and supports a set of
software tools, including an interactive runtime environment (VTP Enviro). The
tools and their source code are freely shared to help accelerate the adoption
and development of the necessary technologies.
