|Advanced Terrain Generation||3D Geospatial Viewers||Source Data Preparation|
TerraSim products support the entire geospatial processing chain, from source data preparation and cartographic feature extraction, to the fully automated compilation of 3D geospatial visualizations, to the display and presentation of environmental data using realtime viewers. As a geospatial content generation company, we support a large number of industry standard formats to allow our customers to integrate diverse information sources into their own applications and end user solutions. TerraSim products support customers in diverse markets.
TerraTools Core® supports the advanced processing of cartographic vector data, 3D object models, and remotely sensed imagery compiled into highly accurate real world environments. TerraSim introduced the first commercial use of integrated triangulated irregular networks (ITINs) in 1996. ITINs have since been adopted as the industry standard terrain representation for high fidelity 3D geospatial visualizations and as the underlying representation for large area modeling and simulation databases.
TerraTools Core supports all of the common source data processing required to build high fidelity geospatial databases. This includes vector and raster source data ingest, rigorous coordinate transformation and reprojection, automatic data cleaning, and user-controlled process scripting.
Each new version of TerraTools Core contains processing improvements as well as technology enhancements. Recent Core enhancements have included underground structure and building interior generation and Urban Details™ processing. Visualization formats supported by TerraTools Core include VRML, Google Earth, and 3ds Max.
Users can export TerraTools databases to a variety of virtual and constructive runtimes with application specific plug-ins that fully interoperate with Core processing. Our product offerings can be mixed and matched to provide our customers with the lowest cost solution that best addresses their application requirements. TerraTools database export is correlated by design, not translation.
TerraSim 3D graphics technology is embedded in our realtime 3D viewers which provide high performance visualization on low-cost graphics cards. Using our Tiled Scene Graph (TSG) format, we support demand paging for large area databases along with multiple levels of detail for terrain geometry and 3D models.
TSGFly™ is a freely distributable viewer for high performance 3D geospatial visualization and advanced analytical tools such as line of sight, point and path tracking, and flexible controls.
TerraTours® is a licensed viewer that supports the interactive display of collateral information embedded into the 3D visualization. TerraTools users can associate still photography, videos, CAD drawings, and web-based information with the 3D environment. This geo-referenced information can be interactively queried and displayed using standard internet browsers.
TerraSim develops source data preparation products that reduce time and complexity in converting raw imagery to geospatial information. These tools export data in standard industry formats and are tailored to support customers requiring creation or intensification of their geospatial data.
MaterialMAP from TerraSim® is a stand-alone application that creates surface material maps from imagery, while simultaneously understanding the unique attribution requirements for multiple modeling and simulation runtimes.
DEMTools from TerraSim® is a stand-alone application that merges, refines, and manipulates digital elevation models (DEMs) for GIS source data preparation and generation.
RoadMAP from TerraSim® is a stand-alone semi-automated road network extraction system that allows users to correct and clean up road network data and export it as a set of ESRI shapefiles.
TerraSim Xtract™ represents a revolutionary concept to fully support legacy database processing for reuse within even the most the most demanding modeling and simulation applications.
