VTVS (Virtual Terrain Visualization System) is a com plete terrain visualization system for interactive explora tion of models of real world locations. It includes a fast LOD system for terrain rendering and support for large numbers of plants and buildings on top of the terrain. In this paper we discuss the implementation of the system and various algorithms we have developed. We provide examples of the success of VTVS and we discuss possible directions for future research.
