Until recently, the study of terrain data gathered by satellites has meant the time-consuming analysis of hundreds of still images. An attempt to use computer animation to analyze such images more effectively is described. A simulated fly-by created by computer animation allows scientists to study many different perspective views of the data quickly. Using this technique, scientists can often detect features they might otherwise have missed.<>
