Tile-Based Geospatial Information Systems: Principles and Practices

Tile-based on-line mapping structures have changed conventional net GIS platforms, as a result of their better velocity and usefulness. the craze in the direction of tile-base structures was once all started by way of net prone businesses, resembling Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft. they've been by means of the conventional GIS group, executive firms and open resource improvement groups, simply because tile established structures yield speedier and paintings greater with 3-D mapping instruments.

The process is illustrated in Fig. G. The model transformation matrix of the object node in the figure is ABCDE. Leaf nodes can also be used to represent fictitious objects such as light sources and camera. 11, the transformation from the coordinate system of the camera to world coordinates is given by AFG. The inverse of this matrix, (AFG) 1 , transforms a point from world space to camera space. This matrix is called the view matrix. The combined model-view matrix that transforms the object’s local coordinates to camera space is therefore given by (AFG) 1 ABCDE, or equivalently, G 1 F 1 BCDE.

The arm is driven by feeding joint angles to the controllers. Some constraints may be applied to the joint angles based on the application requirements. For example, a robotic arm for welding or painting may require the end effector (denoted by Link-5 in Fig. 3) to be kept in a horizontal position. It may also be required to have a camera attached to the end effector to obtain a clear perspective of the surrounding scene from its viewpoint. The graphical rendering of the scene as viewed from the position of Link-5 can be obtained by adding the camera node to the group node Group-4 as shown in Fig.
