Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A high level of terrain correlation is required for models and simluations participating in a distributed interactive simulation environment to achieve consistent outcomes among the simulations, convey realism, and import credibility to the results. From an interoperability viewport, each "participant" must "see" and "interact" within the same terrain environment to ensure a "level playing field." This report presents a quantitative and qualitative analysis of existing information relating to the impact of terrain resolution on modeling and simulation outcomes with respect to line of sight, battle outcomes, and preprocessing time.
