Abstract
A 3-dimensional virtual landscape has been produced of Al-Madinah Al-Munwwarah in Saudi Arabia. A Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) interpolation method has been used to create a digital elevation model (DEM) from digital topographic maps at 1:1000 scale. High resolution aerial photography has been merged with satellite imagery to drape over the DEM. The resultant DEM, and fused overlay images, has been imported into Internet Space Builder software in order to add several attributes to the scene and to create an interactive virtual reality modelling language (VRML) model to support walk-throughs of the scene.
