3D Global Terrain global topography and imagery, off-line package
version 1.2 official webpage
3D Global Terrain, global topography and imagery, off-line package 3D Global Terrain is the only OFF-LINE 3D platform that combines NASA imagery generated from Blue Marble project, elevation data from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and more than 6.5 million of land markers with Cities and Points of Interest into a relatively small but powerful worldwide platform. GTerrain will allow you to visit any place in the world, know the general topography, and load and display Waypoints, Routes and Tracks from many file formats.
Main features
  • Topography and Satellite imagery: GTerrain has a full copy of the Blue Marble satellite imagery and the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) Data stored in an off-line database (local copy) allowing you to use GTerrain without Internet connection. Both Blue Marble and the SRTM have a fixed resolution of ~450mts per pixel, in order to maintain a relatively low hard-disk space requirement of ~3GB. This important feature will give you the possibility to use 3D Global Terrain in field applications (using it on a Notebook on the road).
  • Multi-format file support: GTerrain allows you to load and display Waypoints, Routes and Tracks from many different file formats:
    • KMZ files (Keyhole Markup Language)(kmz)
    • KML files (Keyhole Markup Language)(kml)
    • GPS exchange format (gpx)
    • TomTom Navigator overlay (ov2)
    • TomTom Navigator itinerary (itn)
    • Magellan MapSend Waypoint/Route files (wpt)
    • Magellan MapSend Track files (trk)
    • Garmin Point of Interest (non encrypted only)(gpi)
    • Palm Address Book files (aba)
    • NMEA 0183 sentences files (nmea)
    • SUUNTO Data files (sdf)
    • Navigon MN6 files (rte)
    • Navigon MN6 storage files (storage)
    • Navigon MN5 files (rte)
    • Navigon MN4 files (rte)
    • iGO (comma delimited)(asc)
    • Garmin POI (comma delimited)(csv)
    • Magellan POI (comma delimited)(csv)
    • Route66 (comma delimited)(csv)
    • Navman (comma delimited)(csv)
  • Place names: GTerrain has a full catalog of 2,411,161 countries, capitals, cities, towns, and even historical references and 4,252,852 of additional points of interest like mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers, structures, etc. The names update dynamically, by increasing or decreasing in number according the user proximity and altitude.
  • 3D Engine: GTerrain uses First Person Perspective (FPP), which renders the world from the visual perspective of the user, in a realistic way just as if he were really there. Particular focus was put into the ease of usability, all one needs to control GTerrain is a two button mouse and the arrow keys or just a Joystick.
    GTerrain was designed to run on recent PC hardware with 3D acceleration. Please refer to the download section for more information on system requirements.
  • Visual Tools: GTerrain comes with a variety of visual guides that help the user's experience such as latitude and longitude markers, as well as extremely precise coordinate data, like geographic position, compass, heading and tilt indicator, altitude and ground elevation.
