What is a Solid Terrain Model?


A Solid Terrain Model is a geospatially accurate, physical, three dimensional model of an area’s terrain. Solid Terrain Models can be made of almost any geographical area in the world, and they are designed to be held and touched.

Because Solid Terrain Models are physical made-to-scale representations of a specified area, they are used across many industries – from museums to mining – as a tactile learning and planning tool. They are widely used for interactive applications where the audience may contain a wide range of technical and non-technical expertise.
