A-150: Digital Terrain-Model Rehearsal

Previous: A-149: Terrain-Model Rehearsal

A-150. With today’s digital capabilities, users can construct terrain models in virtual space. Units drape high-resolution imagery over elevation data thereby creating a flythrough or walk-through. Holographic imagery produces views in three dimensions. Often, the model hot links graphics, detailed information, unmanned aircraft systems, and ground imagery to key points providing accurate insight to the plan. Digital terrain models reduce the operations security risk because they do not use real terrain. The unit geospatial engineers or imagery analysts can assist in digital model creation. Detailed city models exist for many world cities.
