This post is for a new discussion on UD, because the older ones “Discussion about how an UD algorithm might work” and “Unlimited detail challenge: the most easy formulation” have lots of comments.
UPDATE: It looks like Oliver Kreylos (go and read his blog as well) extremely interesting work on LiDAR Visualization is very close to Bruce Dell’s Geoverse. Thanks to Dave H. (see comments further) for letting me know about this. It is more and more puzzling why UD was welcomed by so much rejection and so many hate messages when, it turns out, slowly but surely, that’s one of the future hot topics.
Please post here any new comment and I shall update this post with relevant information. We are close to a solution (maybe different than the original), thanks to several contributors, this project begins to look like a real collaborative one.
Note: please don’t get worried if your comment does not appear immediately, this might be due to the fact that it contains links (which is good!) or other quirks of the wordpress filtering of comments, which makes that sometimes I have to approve comments by people who already have previous approved comments. (Also, mind that the first comment you make have to be approved, the following ones are free of approval, unless the previous remarks apply.)
