Visualization of Digital Terrain and Landscape Data
This book approaches the realisation of digital terrain and landscape data through clear and practical examples. From data provision and the creation of revealing analyses to realistic depictions for presentation purposes, the reader is led through the world of digital 3-D graphics. The authors' deep knowledge of the scientific fundamentals and many years of experience in 3-D visualization enable them to lead the reader through a complex subject and shed light on previously murky virtual landscapes. Rüdiger Mach The author studied hydraulic engineering and has been engaged in CAD construction, 3D animation and image editing in a technical / scientific environment for over 15 years. He writes books about 3D visualization, and works as an engineer and lecturer in the field of technical and scientific visualization. As a senior project manager of the ViewTec Ltd., he is responsible for 3D visualization, the scientific depiction of results and everything to do with design and communication of visual problem solving. Peter Petschek After his studies in Germany and the USA from 1987 - 1996, the author progressed to occupational activity as a landscape architect in several offices (EDSA - Fort Lauderdale, Knoll - Sindelfingen, Kienast - Zürich) with the emphasis placed on IT implementation in free area design. In 1991 he was called as professor for technology in landscape architecture, department of landscape architecture, to HSR Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil, Switzerland.
