OziExplorer3D is software which allows map images to be viewed in 3D with the ability to rotate in all directions and zoom in and out of the view. When the term OziExplorer3D is used the 3D map viewer is being referred to, when the term OziExplorer is used the OziExplorer GPS Mapping Software is being referred to. The 3D maps are created using the OziExplorer GPS Mapping Software are then viewed by OziExplorer3D, in this respect OziExplorer3D can be considered as an add-on to the OziExplorer GPS Mapping software. A 3D map can be created from any map that can be loaded in OziExplorer provided you have elevation data for the region. A 3D map is composed of a map image (or image part) and a grid of heights at a spacing specified by the user. The software plots the height grid in 3D and then overlays the map image on the grid (this is called texturing) to produce a 3D map. OziExplorer creates the grid of heights using the height data you have obtained and writes this to a file. Other required information is also written to the file and the file is then passed to OziExplorer3D which loads the file and the map image (or image section) and displays the 3D map.
