New Method of Visibility Network and Statistical Pattern Network Recognition Usage in Terrain Surfaces


Many problems in the analysis of natural terrain surface shapes and the construction of terrain maps to model them remain unsolved. Almost the whole process of thematic interpretation of aerospace information consists of a step-by-step grouping and further data conversion for the purpose of creating a completely definite, problematically oriented picture of the earth’s surface. In this article, we present application of a new method of drawing 3D visibility networks for pattern recognition and its application on terrain surfaces. For the determination of complexity of 3D surface terrain, we use fractal geometry method. We use algorithm for constructing the visibility network to analyse the topological property of networks used in complex terrain surfaces. Terrain models give a fast overview of a landscape and are often fascinating and overwhelmingly beautiful works by artists who invest all their interest and an immense amount of work and know-how, combined with a developed sense of the portrayed landscape, in creating them. At the end, we present modelling of terrain surfaces with topological properties of the visibility network in 3D space.
