Within the framework of IsViews, RSS GmbH visualised Iceland in 3D using high-resolution remote sensing data. The interactive 3D visualisation was created based on RapidEye satellite imagery with 5 m spatial resolution and a Digital Elevation Model with 20 m resolution. A multi-temporal set of 267 RapidEye image tiles was used to create an almost cloud-free and seamless image mosaic of Iceland. Part of the Vatnajökull glacier is shown in a higher resolution of 0.3 m and was created from HRSC aerial imagery.
If you are having problems with the Viewer, you can also watch the video at Vimeo.
