TerraSim Releases Xtract™ 1.1


July 23, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim, Inc is pleased to announce the latest release of its database reuse tool: TerraSim Xtract™ 1.1. Xtract is a low cost, standalone application with support for 32 and 64 bit Windows workstations. Using TerraSim's proven and advanced terrain generation technology, Xtract works out of the box with a clean and simple user interface with no embedded format editors.

The latest release of Xtract includes over 30 improvements and bug fixes, including:

  • Support for the Windows 7 operating system
  • A more user-friendly interface
  • Processing speedups
  • Memory improvement
  • Additional documentation including step-by-step tutorials with sample data.

Xtract supports the ingest of OTBSAF CTDB, OneSAF OTF, and OpenFlight databases and individual models. It produces terrain surfaces, geospatial vectors, and 3D model libraries. Users can select multiple representations for each of these categories for fast and consistent data extraction. For example, a legacy terrain surface can be simultaneously exported as gridded DEM, as a triangulated irregular network (TIN), as well as a reprojected and resampled grid, all under user control.

Xtract exports to the widest variety of third party geospatial data processing products, including Global Mapper, 3DStudio Max, Bohemia Interactive Oxygene, ESRI ArcGIS, OpenSceneGraph viewers, Google Earth, Presagis Creator, and more. In addition, Xtract supports simultaneous model extraction and enhancement, converting to 3DStudioMax, COLLADA, VBS2 P3D, OpenFlight, and tiled scenegraph (TSG) format.

Xtract 1.1 is shipping at no additional cost to current customers under their support and maintenance contracts. To learn more about Xtract 1.1, visit our products page or email us at sales@terrasim.com .
