Newbie Question

Forgive my newbie question ...

Is it possible to alter original ground terrain surfaces to create proposed or planned land forms. Here is an example: showing a pad merged into the original ground surface. The designed area (pad, road etc.) could be available in various triangular mesh and gridded formats.

If it is possible, could you please point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.


You would need to get your data into either a quantized mesh or height map format and tile it up to be served. Depending on your terrain, we usually see better performance with quantized mesh. AGI (the company that founded Cesium) has a commercial product called STK Terrain Server for processing and serving terrain data in this format.
