Output Projection is the projection to be used for the generated landscape. Depending on the output format, options are slightly different.
Object Landscape Terrain#
The generated landscape is exported to Object Landscape Terrain, which is actually a flat (i.e. not geospherical) area. Therefore, only projected coordinate systems are available for selection and can be used as export projections.
The following types of output projections (in the Preview map, the Play Area's projection) are available:
- Built-In (Geodetic Pivot) projection based on WGS-84 ellipsoid.
- Custom projection that is used for data with a custom source projection (not WGS-84 ellipsoid-based) saved by using a 3rd party software (e.g., CityEngine). Such projection should be described in the WKT (Well Known Text) format stored in .prj files (e.g., it can be generated in Global Mapper).
The terrain generated with the custom projections cannot be curved.
