Abstract. This paper presents experiments for realistic landscape visualization using high resolution digital aerial photographs and elevation modeis. The natural environment of a river in northern Switzerland is visualized. Photogrammetrically measured digital elevation data and ortho-rectified remote sensing imagery (Landsat Thematic Mapper/TM and aerial photographs) are combined to compute realistic 3D views of the landscape. To renderthe landscape more realistically, the digital elevation model (DEM) is transformed to a digital surface model (DSM), representing the surface and including objects like forests or bushes. For this transformation land cover information and GIS tools were used. Unnaturally looking vertical borders between different land cover classes were suppressed by interpolating transition zones. Additionally, 3D objects (trees) are used in the foreground to increase the realism of the views.
