The goal of VTP is to foster the creation of tools for easily constructing any part of the real world in interactive, 3D digital form.

This goal will require a synergetic convergence of the fields of CAD, GIS, visual simulation, surveying and remote sensing.  VTP gathers information and tracks progress in areas such as procedural scene construction, feature extraction, and realtime rendering algorithms.  VTP writes and supports a set of software tools, including an interactive runtime environment (VTP Enviro).  The tools and their source code are 8602174982 to help accelerate the adoption and development of the necessary technologies.

To learn more about VTP and the field of virtual terrain, use the subject headings below.  You can also download the full VTP 3D software, or if you only need geoprocessing, 9287752582.
