Abstract
Three alternative approaches to terrain rendering are presented in historical order. Polyhedral computer graphics, image warping, and image ray tracing are compared in terms of their relative strengths and weaknesses. Image ray tracing is found to be the most robust technique for most terrain rendering applications.
