Efficient Rendering of Landscapes




In the context of the bundle project undefinedAbstraction of Geographic Information within the Multi-Scale Acquisition, Administration, Analysis and Visualization funded by the undefinedGerman Research Foundation (DFG) we work on the subproject Ontological Scales for automated detection, efficient processing and fast visualization of landscape models together with our project Partners at Universität Bonn at the Institutes of undefinedPhotogrammetry and undefinedGeoinformation.

Tasks in Computer Graphics

  • sensor fusion
  • model-based reconstruction
  • parameterized prototypes
  • efficient LOD structure
  • hybrid rendering (points/triangles/polyhedra)
  • semantic-based navigation
  • semantic-based interaction
