EarthExplorer

EarthExplorer uses OpenGL to render terrain on globe from NASA elevation data files (*.hgt).

This repository contains a few HGT files, but you can find more here: http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/Coverage%20map%20viewfinderpanoramas_org3.htm

Features

  • two cameras (press F to switch, fly with WSAD)
  • two modes - map and fly mode (press V to switch)
  • level of details - you can set details level (1-9 keys) or set auto (0 key)

Remarks

This project was created as an excercise on my university. It's rather a simple implementation, just to learn how to use OpenGL. It's quite slow, regardless implemented culling.

Compilation

To compile unzip lib.zip first. To launch the application copy EarthExplorer\Shaders and EarthExplorer\glew32.dll to the directory with EarthExplorer.exe.

Sample command:
EarthExplorer.exe -mdir ..\hgt_files
