       The ElevationGrid node specifies a uniform rectangular grid of varying height in the Y=0 plane of the local coordinate system. The geometry is described by a scalar array of height values that specify the height of a surface above each point of the grid.

       The xDimension and zDimension fields indicate the number of elements of the grid height array in the X and Z directions. Both xDimension and zDimension shall be greater than or equal to zero. If either the xDimension or the zDimension is less than two, the ElevationGrid contains no quadrilaterals. The vertex locations for the rectangles are defined by the height field and the xSpacing and zSpacing fields:

       · The height field is an xDimension by zDimension array of scalar values representing the height above the grid for each vertex.
       · The xSpacing and zSpacing fields indicate the distance between vertices in the X and Z directions respectively, and shall be greater than zero.
       Thus, the vertex corresponding to the point P[i, j] on the grid is placed at:
           P[i,j].x = xSpacing × i
           P[i,j].y = height[ i + j × xDimension]
           P[i,j].z = zSpacing × j

           where 0 <= i < xDimension and 0 <= j < zDimension, and
           P[0,0] is height[0] units above/below the origin of the local
           coordinate system
         .fi
       The set_height eventIn allows the height MFFloat field to be changed to support animated ElevationGrid nodes.
       The color field specifies per-vertex or per-quadrilateral colours for the ElevationGrid node depending on the value of colorPerVertex. If the color field is NULL, the ElevationGrid node is rendered with the overall attributes of the Shape node enclosing the ElevationGrid node (see 4.14, Lighting model).
       The colorPerVertex field determines whether colours specified in the color field are applied to each vertex or each quadrilateral of the ElevationGrid node. If colorPerVertex is FALSE and the color field is not NULL, the color field shall specify a Color node containing at least (xDimension-1)×(zDimension-1) colours; one for each quadrilateral, ordered as follows:
           QuadColor[i,j] = Color[ i + j × (xDimension-1)]

           where 0 <= i < xDimension-1 and 0 <= j < zDimension-1, and
           QuadColor[i,j] is the colour for the quadrilateral defined by
           height[i+j×xDimension], height[(i+1)+j×xDimension],
           height[(i+1)+(j+1)×xDimension] and height[i+(j+1)×xDimension]
         .fi
       If colorPerVertex is TRUE and the color field is not NULL, the color field shall specify a Color node containing at least xDimension × zDimension colours, one for each vertex, ordered as follows:
           VertexColor[i,j] = Color[ i + j × xDimension]

           where 0 <= i < xDimension and 0 <= j < zDimension, and
           VertexColor[i,j] is the colour for the vertex defined by
           height[i+j×xDimension]
         .fi
       The normal field specifies per-vertex or per-quadrilateral normals for the ElevationGrid node. If the normal field is NULL, the browser shall automatically generate normals, using the creaseAngle field to determine if and how normals are smoothed across the surface (see 4.6.3.5, Crease angle field).
       The normalPerVertex field determines whether normals are applied to each vertex or each quadrilateral of the ElevationGrid node depending on the value of normalPerVertex. If normalPerVertex is FALSE and the normal node is not NULL, the normal field shall specify a Normal node containing at least (xDimension-1)×(zDimension-1) normals; one for each quadrilateral, ordered as follows:
           QuadNormal[i,j] = Normal[ i + j × (xDimension-1)]

           where 0 <= i < xDimension-1 and 0 <= j < zDimension-1, and
           QuadNormal[i,j] is the normal for the quadrilateral
           defined by height[i+j×xDimension], height[(i+1)+j×xDimension],
           height[(i+1)+(j+1)×xDimension] and height[i+(j+1)×xDimension]
         .fi
       If normalPerVertex is TRUE and the normal field is not NULL, the normal field shall specify a Normal node containing at least xDimension × zDimension normals; one for each vertex, ordered as follows:
           VertexNormal[i,j] = Normal[ i + j × xDimension]

           where 0 <= i < xDimension and 0 <= j < zDimension, and
           VertexNormal[i,j] is the normal for the vertex defined by
           height[i+j×xDimension]
         .fi
       The texCoord field specifies per-vertex texture coordinates for the ElevationGrid node. If texCoord is NULL, default texture coordinates are applied to the geometry. The default texture coordinates range from (0,0) at the first vertex to (1,1) at the last vertex. The S texture coordinate is aligned with the positive X-axis, and the T texture coordinate with positive Z-axis. If texCoord is not NULL, it shall specify a TextureCoordinate node containing at least (xDimension)×(zDimension) texture coordinates; one for each vertex, ordered as follows:
           VertexTexCoord[i,j] = TextureCoordinate[ i + j × xDimension]

           where 0 <= i < xDimension and 0 <= j < zDimension, and
           VertexTexCoord[i,j] is the texture coordinate for the vertex
           defined by height[i+j×xDimension]
         .fi
       The ccw, solid, and creaseAngle fields are described in 4.6.3, Shapes and geometry. By default, the quadrilaterals are defined with a counterclockwise ordering. Hence, the Y-component of the normal is positive. Setting the ccw field to FALSE reverses the normal direction. Backface culling is enabled when the solid field is TRUE. See Figure 6.5 for a depiction of the ElevationGrid node.

Member Function Documentation

   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::initClass (void) [static] Sets up initialization for data common to
       all instances of this class, like submitting necessary information to the Coin type
       system.
       Reimplemented from SoVRMLGeometry.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::GLRender (SoGLRenderAction *action) [virtual] Action method for the
       SoGLRenderAction.
       This is called during rendering traversals. Nodes influencing the rendering state in any
       way or who wants to throw geometry primitives at OpenGL overrides this method.
       Reimplemented from SoShape.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::rayPick (SoRayPickAction *action) [virtual] Calculates picked point
       based on primitives generated by subclasses.
       Reimplemented from SoShape.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::getPrimitiveCount (SoGetPrimitiveCountAction *action) [virtual]
       Action method for the SoGetPrimitiveCountAction.
       Calculates the number of triangle, line segment and point primitives for the node and adds
       these to the counters of the action.
       Nodes influencing how geometry nodes calculates their primitive count also overrides this
       method to change the relevant state variables.
       Reimplemented from SoShape.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::notify (SoNotList *l) [protected, virtual] Notifies all auditors for
       this instance when changes are made.
       Reimplemented from SoVRMLGeometry.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::generatePrimitives (SoAction *action) [protected, virtual] The
       method implements action behavior for shape nodes for SoCallbackAction. It is invoked from
       SoShape::callback(). (Subclasses should not override SoNode::callback().)
       The subclass implementations uses the convenience methods SoShape::beginShape(),
       SoShape::shapeVertex(), and SoShape::endShape(), with SoDetail instances, to pass the
       primitives making up the shape back to the caller.
       Implements SoShape.
   void SoVRMLElevationGrid::computeBBox (SoAction *action, SbBox3f &box, SbVec3f &center)
       [protected, virtual] Implemented by SoShape subclasses to let the SoShape superclass know
       the exact size and weighted center point of the shape's bounding box.
       The bounding box and center point should be calculated and returned in the local
       coordinate system.
       The method implements action behavior for shape nodes for SoGetBoundingBoxAction. It is
       invoked from SoShape::getBoundingBox(). (Subclasses should not override
       SoNode::getBoundingBox().)
       The box parameter sent in is guaranteed to be an empty box, while center is undefined upon
       function entry.
       Implements SoShape.
