Landscape rendering algorithms

Recommended Posts

A great site here, helped me a lot to get started with GL. But now I was interested if anyone could point out to site where different landscape rendering algorithms would be described. Of course, it would be good if there would be practical examples too, but not neceserily Anyway, any info on rendering algorithms would be more than welcome Thanks in advance.

Not to flame anyone, but sometimes asking in a forum is a good idea to get filtered content relevant to what you are searching for, or sometimes just to get content that is not immediately listed by a search engine.

Thanks for replies everyone! Any more directions would be still welcome though :D

P.S. Darkwing, thank you for your very inteligent answer. But searching doesn''t end with google. I preffer more asking in forums, like this one, where people, concerned with the topic i''m searching for, are reading; though i''m not neglecting search in google.

Not to offend anyone, but just entering the topic in google gives you about 10k results. If the results on the first page don''t give you enogh material to research further then what will? And I find google a perfer anwser for a wide question as this. If you asked for specific question then anwsers would be more on point.

You should never let your fears become the boundaries of your dreams.

I can undestand this because everything is on the net. Everything is present in at least 100 000 000 different web pages, which is the same as finding nothing.
Since some people are paying for connection (btw, no matter how much you pay or not pay, wasted time won''t be back) sometimes it''s much more productive to ask for help in finding a good page out of 100 000.
