MapRender3D terrain modelling software creates 2D and 3D relief maps graphics using DEM's.
MapRender3D terrain modelling and visualization software package creates high quality relief maps in both 2D and 3D graphics using either a supplied world wide elevation database or widely available public domain DEM files.
MapRender3D generated Maui (Hawaiian Islands) using USGS DEM's at a resolution of approx. 100 meters.
MapRender3D features many advanced controls including custom rendering, projection selection, rotation, sizing, exaggeration, texture draping, lighting, shading, selective elevation color graduation, and a wide range of import and export formats.
MapRender3D in addition to it's wide range of data import formats is supplied with a world data integrated into five seamless compressed databases, each at a different scale. Also supplied are twenty-seven projected world maps, fourteen special maps of the oceans, poles and hemispheres, and more than one hundred projected country and continental maps. These maps are in USGS Digital Elevation Model (DEM) format.
MapRender3D generated exaggerated relief of Kodiak Islands, Alaska in 3D format using the USGS DEM's.
Typical applications users will be designers, technicians and artists who wish to generate realistic relief shaded landscape perspectives of local, regional, national and worldwide areas - for use in a wide range of media, including print, multimedia, animations, web, presentations, publications and in other software applications.
All the maps on this site have been created using MapRender3D™, our easy-to-use terrain modeling software package. The images have been reduced in size and color depth for faster loading. To get you started speedily, please check these Quick Start instructions.
