|Demeter Terrain Engine >> Documentation >> Project Architecture|
The Demeter Terrain Engine is composed of three types of modules: the Core Library, Elevation Loaders, and Texture Loaders. The core library is a shared object (or DLL on Windows) that contains the terrain-rendering engine itself. Elevation Loaders are shared objects that provide digital elevation data to the core rendering library, such as by reading from DEM files, grayscale image files, or the Internet. Texture Loaders are shared objects that provide images to the core rendering library, usually by reading image files such as JPEG’s, PNG’s etc. from the user’s local machine. Each of these types of modules is described in detail below.
