How to Make a 3D Terrain Using WRLD Maps

Technology
With three-dimensional maps being widely used these days, interest on how they are made has also peaked. A short answer would be that numerous digital map sources are processed, enhanced, and then combined to create the 3D models that are then made available for streaming on the web. However, the long answer is definitely a more detailed and a more complicated process. A very important component of a 3D map is the 3D terrain. At WRLD, it is notable how the 3D terrain on the city level maps is quite different to how 3D terrains of other competitors look like. Most of the players in the field have opted to focus on maps that are based on satellite imagery and are more realistic-looking. The team at WRLD however, decided to take the stylised and more fun approach. This is also driven by th...
