Description

Lesage (1999) was the first to render convincing sketches of terrain from images of illuminated digital terrain models and produce mpeg videos to demonstrate that it was possible to create smooth and seamless flights over sketched terrain. His proof of concept videos were demonstrated at his MSc viva voce and exhibited by his supervisor, Mahes Visvalingam, at two Friday evening discourses at the Royal Institution in 1999 and 2000.

This data covers dramatic landscapes which provided a challenge for sketching.
