Landscape Visualization Acoustic Simulation Concept Team
A first interactive GIS-based 3D visualization with high level of detail was generated using the Sandbox-Editor of Crytek's CryENGINE 3. The developed prototype is a 3D landscape simulation based on a digital elevation model and an orthophoto.

Objects of landscape elements such as vegetation and 3D models of wind turbines were added according to the corresponding coordinates of their actual locations. Moreover the lighting and the daytime can be changed interactively so that the scenery can be experienced at night time as well. The user is able to go to any location in the visualization in order to explore the visual and acoustic situation. The video gives a first impression of the visualized 3D landscape:
