The hindrances to full use of geospecific imagery are the labor required to create the databases, and limits on the rendering capacity of current image generators (IGs), both in polygon count and texture volume. Our solution is to create modeling tools to automate the application of ISR imagery on geospecific urban geometry and to use advanced rending techniques to visualize dense urban scenes in real time. The modeling tools will aid both current and future systems for out-the-window (OTW) and sensor simulation, providing automatic application of geospecific urban imagery as texture maps on existing 3D geometry from either NPSI OpenFlight models or geometry derived from sensor data, in minutes. The results will be compatible with current database generation tools for use on current IGs. New rendering techniques for next-generation IGs will enable denser urban environments and improve the overall scene quality while still achieving real-time update rates. The modeling tools will support the data formats required for these rendering processes.
