Paper Abstract

The Naval Research Laboratory's Digital Mapping, Charting, and Geodesy Analysis Program is investigating the extension of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency's Vector Product Format (VPF) to handle a wide range of non-manifold 3D objects for modeling and simulation. The extended VPF, referred to as VPF+, makes use of a non-manifold data structure for modeling 3D synthetic environments. The data structure uses a boundary representation method.
