Abstract : Simulation system visual data base designs must provide engineers and test pilots with adequate realism in mission scenarios to insure acceptable results without the luxury of long design schedules. The objective is to build large three-dimensional data bases quickly and efficiently, while generally matching terrain and landscape features. The BUILDING BLOCK approach is presented as a means to achieve this objective. An example is presented to illustrate this approach. (Author)
