I've written some tools that read in various height models - DEM, Tins etc.
There would be a "Issue" IMO currently with regard to this. I'm assuming that this would be handled in somehting like DirectX (As i Did it). Unfortunatly MS paused Managed DirectX at 1.1, instead choosing to concentrate on XNA - which would be
totally unsuitably for this type of thing.
There is an open sauce project called SlimDX which effectively acts as a interface between, but i'm not sure how that would fit in with the current aim of SharpMap/NTS/GeoAPI etc which appears to be "modularity/interopability" (not sure
if thats the best choice of words")
Anybody have any thoughts??
