TerraMetrics to Showcase TruEarth® Global Imagery and TerraBlocks™ Terrain-rendering Solution at Training and Simulation Expo
November 6, 2006

Littleton, Colo.—Littleton, Colorado-based TerraMetrics, Inc., a leading provider of satellite imagery databases, 3-D terrain datasets, and software tools for visual simulation and training markets, announced today that it will exhibit at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., December 4–7, 2006.

I/ITSEC encourages cooperation between the armed services, industry, academia and other government agencies in pursuit of improved training and education programs. Initiated in 1966 as the Naval Training Device Center/Industry Conference, the conference has evolved and expanded through increased participation by the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and industry.

“TerraMetrics is committed to developing products and technologies for the training and simulation community,” says Greg Baxes, TerraMetrics president. “Our TruEarth® 15-meter global, natural-color imagery has become the defacto standard in the most visible geospatial environments, and our TerraBlocks™ terrain-rendering solution brings a new level of precision to flight simulation, mission rehearsal and even demanding cockpit flight display applications.”

The TerraBlocks system addresses both the data storage/server and client components of 3D terrain rendering. This cutting-edge approach stores large terrain and imagery datasets while maintaining accuracy and resolution. The 3D terrain-rendering engine provides precise, on-the-sphere, smoothly continuous rendering at multiple levels of detail and is suitable for wireless platforms. According to Baxes, TruEarth 15-meter global imagery is an ideal global terrain/imagery base layer for the TerraBlocks system.

TerraMetrics will demonstrate the TerraBlocks terrain-rendering solution in booth #1145. For more details about the I/ITSEC show, see www.iitsec.org.
