With the help of the community of Chianciano Terme, the University of Arizona initiated excavation of an archaeological zone in the locality of central Chianciano known as Mezzomiglio in 1995. The excavation revealed a group of significant structures which date to two distinct periods: Late Etruscan and early Roman Imperial.

This render uses 10 meter USGS SDTS digital elevation data and aerial photographs. This is using a newer version of the volumetric butt and lighting algorithm used in the movie below.
This is a morning drive along the location of Sunrise/Skyline Drives. This is an initial test of a new volumetric butts and lighting algorithm. The landscape is created with 10 meter USGS SDTS data. Work is being done on making this into a real-time, interactive virtual reality environment.
The plot is of a three dimensional source distribution for a supersonic passenger airliner. Also seen is the N-wave created on the ground from the distribution. Note: the height scale is set only for the N-wave. (Research by Gene Bergmeier and Steve Crow; Visualization created using IBM Data Explorer)
