Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim® will showcase advanced terrain technologies at the GameTech Users’ Conference 2014 in Orlando, FL on September 3-5 at Booth 3. This technology includes the recently released TerraTools® 5 and the new Batch Mode Manager plug-in, a real-time graphical interface for managing TerraTools batch processing.

New MaterialMAP technologies will also be showcased, including a streamlined workflow for Bohemia Interactive Simulation’s (BISim) Virtual Battlespace 3’s (VBS3) extended surface material and biotopes, as well as vector import, and localized, rule-based aggregation of surface maps.

“TerraSim and BISim have been working to address the challenges involved with producing more richly detailed terrains in virtual simulation without compromising performance and graphics," said Michael McKinley, a senior analyst at TerraSim. “TerraSim’s products support multiple formats across visual, constructive, and serious game runtime simulations while providing the tightest VBS3 integration and support in the industry.”

In addition to showcasing these new technologies, Wilson A. Harvey and Alysa J. Young of TerraSim will give a presentation focusing on recent terrain technology developments.

The presentation, "From Source to Simulation," will examine the incorporation of enhanced features into geo-specific, simulated terrain databases from geospatial source data, including the process for generating surface material maps through satellite image classification.

Wilson and Alysa will also demonstrate how TerraSim’s MaterialMAP enables biotopes (groupings of trees, rocks, vegetation, etc.) in VBS3. The presentation will be delivered on Wednesday, September 3 in Wekiwa 5 at 4:00 PM.
