    dted data in collada

    Hi there;

    I just want to know whether it is possible to accomodate the usage of real geographical data like DTED or some other lat/lon given data,(graphically for terrains), in COLLADA.
    What type of conversion will you suggest if you think is needed so?

    Any ideas will be appreciated..

    Hope I am clear enough.

    Currently there's no standard way of describing geospatial data like DTED in COLLADA. You can however use <extra> data to store almost anything you like. Maybe you would put the DTED data in a <geometry> element as follows:
    Code :
    <geometry>
      ...
      <extra>
        <technique profile="dted">
          <DTED>...</DTED>
        </technique>
      </extra>
    </geometry>
    Since this data's not part of the standard it won't be interchangeable with other applications.
