Abstract [en]

This thesis is written to explore the possibility of generating planet shaped virtual worlds. Today’s computer games present more and more complex worlds but have yet to show us a complete spherical world in large scale. The thesis goes in to describing a data structure sufficient for the task as well as describing how to use the structure.

We evaluate previously done work for planar worlds and use this as a base when defining our new structure. Since a lot of work has been done in this area for planar worlds there exist several well defined concepts that can either be used as is or with a few minor changes. But certain parts needs to be replaced by new concepts since what we want to describe differs much from traditional virtual worlds. The result is a structure that enables a user to interact in real-time with a planet shaped terrain surface.
