Abstract: Particle system and metaball techniques are introduced from computer graphics to geography. Combined with Remote Sensing In formation Model of Water Erosion on Hillslopes(RSIMWEH), the authors put forward the concept of erosion voxel and dynamically display the process of soil erosion by water on hillslopes in 3D space. This is a new probe for 3D GIS theory and the paper proves its feasibility through application.

Key words: RSIMWEH, particle system, metaball, erosion voxel

摘要: 从计算机图形学领域引入粒子系统与元球技术,同坡面土壤水蚀遥感信息模型(RSIMWEH)结合,提出侵蚀体元的概念,从三维可视化角度动态 显示坡面水蚀过程。从三维GIS理论上来说,这是一种新的探索,在技术上,结合实际应用证明了其可行性。
