A study on efficient visualization and real-time interactivity of large-scale scenes is discussed. Introducing parallel processing technology, we present a parallelizable strategy with the pipeline algorithm, realize this parallel algorithm based on shared-memory, and then apply this program to a test site, the Peking Olympic Games planning mixed scenes, including real-time rendering, dynamical texture loading, quick browsing and so on. The results show a running performance and real-time interactivity improvement of DEPS (Digital Earth Prototype System) when using this algorithm. The parallel program of this paper was developed and running on a Silicon Graphics multiprocessor, Onyx 3200, with four MIPS R12000 processors and InfiniteReality 3 graphic accelerator, under IRIX 6.5 operating system.
