Benjamin will show the evolution of terrain representation in flight simulators and discuss how OpenStreetMap can improve the existing landscape in this area. He’ll show how close to reality you can get thanks to OSM, discuss the pros and cons of using OSM in flight simulation, and talk about the different approaches out there.
