Several 3D graphic sequences help explain the geography and geological history of Death Valley, the lowest point in North America. Our global Satellite Imagemap sets the scene, while high-resolution Landsat imagery is combined with digital terrain data to present detailed views of the area. Dynamic time-sequences show tectonic movements in the region and simulate the formation of glacial meltwater lakes at the end of the last ice age.
DEATH VALLEY is a documentary television programme produced in HDTV by UFA for the Discovery Channel and NHK. Planetary Visions provided ten 3D graphics sequences in widescreen format.
