Inverse Control of Physically Consistent Terrains – INVTERRA

Submission summary

In a world where digital exchanges drive a pressing need for virtual environments, a challenge lies in the authoring of the root of these synthetic worlds: the mountains, plains, and other landforms concatenated and represented as terrains. This problem is notoriously difficult because terrains result from the interplay of physical events over geological time scales. This project aims to explore the inversion of simulation parameters as a novel paradigm for terrain generation in virtual worlds, combining geological consistency, natural diversity, and expressive user control for the first time.
