This web portal on terrain modelling has been created at Forest and Landscape, University of Copenhagen by landscape architects José Lameiras and Ian Jørgensen. Both have a background teaching IT in landscape architecture. Focus is on digital technologies to interact with surface models and develop landscape design. So, this is about LIM – Landscape Information Modelling as a response to architect’s BIM (Building IM).
Biosphere3D is a 64 bit Windows, real-time, open source landscape visualization system. The virtual globe is focussing on real-time rendering and visual simulation of vegetation and landscape scenery. The website has been launched to support the community of programmers and users.
