23rd September 2020 - 12:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


MetaVR has released a new version of its Terrain Tools extension to the industry-standard Esri ArcGIS platform.

Terrain Tools 1.6 enables users to turn their geospatial data into real-time 3D terrain to render in the Virtual Reality Scene Generator image generator from MetaVR.

Terrain Tools combines ‘powerful 3D terrain building functionality with an accessible and intuitive interface that enables users to create real-time terrain for simulated military and civil training scenarios in MetaVR's Metadesic round-earth terrain format’, the company noted in a 21 September statement.

Using Terrain Tools 1.6, MetaVR has already built a new high-resolution 3D terrain dataset of Spain (pictured), including Los Llanos Albacete Air Base in the centre of the country.
