Users of digital map applications are demanding more realistic display qualities. With the Digital Elevation Model, TomTom maps offer a better approach to enhancing visual accuracy. By integrating this enhanced content with standard maps, it is possible to represent the landscape's altitude in devices or applications covering Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
The main advantage is that maps look much more attractive and are closer to reality, with a layout comparable to that of cartographic atlas maps. The model can be used in both a 2D representation, as well as a 3D visualization of maps, allowing for the draping of the road networks and even satellite imagery over them.
The Digital Elevation Model has been developed to enhance the display of small and medium scale maps.
The lower Levels of Detail are most appropriate for applications with limited memory and processing capabilities. This level of reality is rather basic. The higher Levels of Detail can be used in applications with more advanced memory and processing capabilities. This level of reality is high.
