A More Powerful Core Engine with Altus 2.0
Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 at 12:25 pm by — Category: Uncategorized

The Altus 2.0 engine core, which is portable across all supported platforms, is more efficient, uses less memory, and can do more work given the same hardware compared to Altus 1.0. This is achieved by a new internal model of the planet and a simplified map projection system.

This new model, and projection, results in improvements that allow the Altus platform to produce or consume a broader range of assets and it forms the basis of all of the Altus Server tools and data formats.

Additionally, Altus 2.0 introduces a new technique for determining needed assets for a given view that uses less CPU time increasing efficiency over Altus 1.0 even more.
