Abstract
We have developed a visual three-dimensional simulation and assessment system of the Wenchuan earthquake zone using the Digital Earth concept and highly efficient spatial information visualization technology. Our goal is to provide a foundation for earthquake disaster relief and reconstruction. A number of major collapses, landslides, mud-rock flows and other geological disasters are analysed in the system, and the system can be used to monitor and analyse earthquake relief, rescue and insurance to provide first-hand source material for disaster situation assessment. Multi-sensor, multi-temporal, multi-resolution remote sensing data and multi-scale DEM data are integrated into this system, and produce a sequence of comprehensive resolution datasets. We present management methods for a dynamic multi-resolution terrain model and multi-level scene. These methods are based on the model division, delaminating algorithm, and make use of high-speed buffering mechanisms to achieve a multi-level large-scale real-time rendering of scenes in the disaster areas, which also effectively reduces the rendering delay, and achieves smooth, seamless roaming at different model levels.
