TER Terragen Terrain File

A proprietary file format native to Terragen, a software used for creating natural terrain scenery. Terragen is a tool that allows you to generate realistic and detailed landscapes, mountains, valleys, rivers, and more. Here are some of the key features of TER:

  • Terrain Recognition: TER is a specialized and powerful format for natural terrain scenery, as it can capture the complexity and diversity of natural landscapes. TER is particularly useful in the terrain recognition industry, where it can be used to analyze, classify, and model terrain features and characteristics.
  • TER File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application are capable of reading and importing TER terrain data, thanks to the open asset import library. This allows for the seamless conversion of terrains from TER files into various other 3D file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, DAE, STEP, and more.

JSON CityJSON File

A file format for the efficient storage and exchange of 3D city models and landscapes. It has the following benefits and features:

  • Optimized CityGML: The CityJSON format is based on CityGML, which is an OGC standard for representing and exchanging 3D urban data. However, CityJSON is optimized for simplicity and efficiency, using JSON instead of XML as the underlying syntax. CityJSON reduces the file size and complexity of CityGML files, making them easier to process and manipulate.
  • 3D City Data: The CityJSON files can store 3D city models and landscapes, which are composed of various city objects, such as buildings, roads, bridges, vegetation, etc. Each city object has a name, a geometry, and a set of attributes. The format also supports nested hierarchy, reusable geometry component instances, and custom materials with texture images, which enhance the realism and detail of the 3D city data.
  • CityJSON Converter: Autoconverter allows you to import and export CityJSON files, and convert them into various other 3D mesh file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS`, etc. Our software supports the reading and writing of CityJSON geometries with custom attributes, which preserve the semantic information of the 3D city data.
