TerraBuilder allows users to quickly create, edit and maintain Skyline 3D terrain
Combining any number of aerial photos, satellite images, geographic terrain information
and, digital elevation models, and vector data, TerraBuilder enables quick and easy
creation of large 3D terrain databases.
Draw together data in a wide range of formats, coordinate systems
and spatial resolutions
TerraBuilder can support data import in a wide range of formats, merge data of different
resolutions and sizes and then re-project them into a common reference projection.
TerraBuilder fuses all imagery sources into a seamless mosaic that is draped over
the respective elevation model.
Minimize disk storage and network bandwidth
TerraBuilder compresses your multi-resolution data into a single stream-optimized
file to minimize disk storage and network bandwidth requirements.
Save time by streaming aerial and elevation data in their native
TerraBuilder, with the DirectConnect component, saves time and resources by skipping
the MPT 3D terrain database creation altogether and streaming the native data (e.g.,
ECW, Mr. SID), using the TerraGate server, to TerraExplorer and TerraExplorer Pro
TerraBuilder DirectConnect uses TerraBuilder fusers to exploit the combined computing power of any available server-side computers. This provides scalability for the resources needed to handle the performance-demanding workload of on-the-fly 3D terrain database creation.
Enjoy near real-time updates
With TerraBuilder DirectConnect component, once an updated image or elevation source
is available, it can be loaded in a TerraBuilder project and be immediately available,
in 3D form, for clients to work with over the network.
Process gigabytes of source data into a single 3D database
The TerraBuilder Multi-Processor extension enables every computer on a network to
be used for MPT creation, adding distributed computing power to the 3D terrain generation
process. TerraBuilder Multi-Processor Edition reduces your production time by an
order of magnitude.
Manipulate your data sources to your specifications
With TerraBuilder, you can adjust a source’s dimensions, resolution, color parameters
and elevation, as well as easily clip the section of the source you want included
in the final project.
Bring your TerraBuilder applications to all your potential clients in the global village
Localization tools simplify the translation of user interface text and graphics.
Access, manage and organize your raster, feature, projects and other geographic assets
TerraCatalog is a catalog database that stores, organizes and manages connections your raster and layers and projects, located on a local disk, on the network, on Oracle or on an SQL Server. When TerraBuilder is connected to TerraCatalog, the catalog can easily be browsed and the required geographic data loaded into a TerraBuilder Project. In addition to connecting to the catalog to load catalog layers into a project, TerraBuilder users can bind a project to the catalog. In this case, every layer or project loaded into a project and all modifications to the project are automatically updated to the catalog every time the project is saved.
Troubleshoot and keep track of core functionality events
The TerraBuilder log records and displays warnings, messages, and errors.
