Welcome to the terrain modelling website

This website provides information about physical terrain models.

Terrain models give a fast overview over a landscape and are often fascinating and overwhelmingly beautiful works of artists who invest all their affection and an immense amount of work and know-how, combined with a developed sense for the portrayed landscape.

On this website, you will find information about different relief types and production techniques, about the history and the artists, as well as about applications of terrain models.
