3D Terrain Regions

3D Terrain Regions


MVRsimulation has built 3D terrain covering most regions of the world in its round-earth geocentric VRSG terrain format for rendering in VRSG. These 3D terrain datasets were built with MVRsimulation’s Terrain Tools for Esri® ArcGIS®.


All terrain datasets contain high-resolution insets of many areas of interest (AOI). You can add culture assets from MVRsimulation’s extensive model libraries, your own models, or models extruded and textured with Esri CityEngine® using MVRsimulation’s Scenario Editor.

MVRsimulation's 3D terrain is "Additional Materials" and is provided "as is" as described in our license agreement.  Although MVRsimulation might modify or enhance the original source imagery, some visual artifacts from the source imagery might remain in the terrain tiles.

MVRsimulation's 3D terrain datasets in round-Earth VRSG terrain architecture, (.MDS format) are available for purchase to customers who have active VRSG7 software maintenance and are U.S. government or NATO agencies or contractors (for official use only). The terrain datasets are provided in MVRsimulation's round-Earth VRSG terrain architecture format and will only run with a valid VRSG7 software license with active software maintenance.


How to Obtain 3D Terrain Region Datasets

The 3D terrain region datasets are each delivered on an external hard drive. To order a region of world terrain, specify the line item on the order form and then provide the name of the region. Region terrain datasets are distributed on portable, external USB hard drives.

The entirety of world 3D terrain can be obtained by purchasing:

  • All world region terrain drives plus all regions of CONUS-NAIP terrain
  • All world terrain (including CONUS-NAIP) delivered on a direct-attached, large-volume (DALV) storage device compatible with laptop/notebook and desktop computer configurations requiring USB 3.1 gen2 port.

A fee covers processing large quantities of data into round-earth VRSG terrain architecture tiles database and hard drive distribution media.
