Two Methods for Cloud Visualisation from Weather Simulation Data
Fraunhofer Institut für Graphische Datenverarbeitung
For the local TV presentation of weather forecast data it is important to have high-quality and fast visualisation of clouds. In this paper I present methods for the visualisation of clouds from data produced by a meteorological weather simulation. Isosurfaces, which are originally too coarse because of the data grid resolution are refined and deformed. The resulting geometry is used for cloud visualisation.
