dted data in collada

Hi there;

I just want to know whether it is possible to accomodate the usage of real geographical data like DTED or some other lat/lon given data,(graphically for terrains), in COLLADA.
What type of conversion will you suggest if you think is needed so?

Any ideas will be appreciated…

Hope I am clear enough.


Currently there’s no standard way of describing geospatial data like DTED in COLLADA. You can however use <extra> data to store almost anything you like. Maybe you would put the DTED data in a <geometry> element as follows:

    <technique profile="dted">

Since this data’s not part of the standard it won’t be interchangeable with other applications.

Could you tell us what application you are looking forward to ?
And in particular what tools you are using ?
