Rapid Unified Generation of Urban Databases (RUGUD)

RUGUD generates correlated terrain databases from real-world Geographic Information System (GIS) data. Convert elevation, satellite imagery, and feature data into any of RUGUD’s supported terrain formats. Formats include visual (e.g., OpenFlight, Collada), simulation (e.g., OneSAF, JCAT), or game (e.g., Unreal, VBS).


RUGUD is freely available to government-funded terrain database developers.
