    Abstract

    Realistic scene visualization is an essential part of flight simulation and training. In this tutorial, an approach for generation of photo realistic scenery for visualization in the FlightGear (Flight Simulator) has been presented. The realistic scene integrates orthoimagery and the terrain data obtained from a digital elevation model (DEM). The orthoimagery is overlaid as a texture on the terrain to obtain the PhotoScenery. Using this approach highly realistic scene can be accomplished.
