A new file release and some new news to go with it. The dual projection stereo mode is working correctly I believe. You can now record a movie of your actions taken while using jdemview. Sadly, this does not capture stereo movies and requires the Java Media Framework to work. Also, a few redundant classes were removed and the UI has been slightly altered. I believe that covers everything.
Work done today includes:
support for 1:250,000 scale DEMs. This was in the original package
provided by Dr. Pendergast, but I messed up a few things attempting to
get the 1:24,000 scale DEMs to work.
These DEM files are significantly larger than the 1:24k, so it takes a while to process them for viewing. They are of much better quality, so their edges are not messed up and they mesh together much better than the 1:24k.
You can find them organized by state here.
It has come to my attention that the stereo mode doesn't work quite right. Apparently the left and right views display the exact same thing.
Stereo mode still doesn't work, but I believe I am on the right track. I just need to figure out the correct offset amount.
- The menu bar has been changed around a little bit. There are now functions to change the way textures are applied to the models, as well as a way to switch between stereo and normal view modes. This would previously have required a restart of the program.
Finished the majority of work for the lighting control. Should be a few more options than 4 cardinal points. ;)
Some minor work and updates done today.
- Code cleanup
- Added color chooser so users can pick their own model color.
- Preliminary model for user controlled lighting.
Recently added features of the project are:
- Stereoscopic mode with dual monitors. This is intended for Geowall setups.
- Multiple viewport behaviors.
- User controlled elevation exageration.
- Image texturing, so you can view things like a topographic map spread out over the 3D surface.
- Screen capture.
- User controlled lighting
- Video capture
- Greater support for different DEM versions. Currently only Spatial Data Transfer Standard (SDTS) with a resolution of 24k are supported.
