Bedřich Beneš: Virtual Landscaping, Purdue University, USA
Terrains and landscapes have played an important role in Computer Graphics for
nearly thirty years. However, their modeling still presents an open problem.
Real world terrains are influenced by various effects from which the water
erosion is probably the most important one. Landscapes are formed by the road
system that defines shapes of cities and urban areas, by plan ecosystems that
influence the landscape at all scales, by water bodies, etc.
presentation we will show an overview of terrain and landscape modeling
techniques. We will show approaches to populate terrains with urban areas,
interactive ecosystem modeling, hydraulic erosion, plant interaction with
environments and how these all multi-layered modeling techniques of various
phenomena could yield to a unified terrain modeling system. The presentation
will focus both interactive and off-line modeling as well as modeling on
