In this paper, we give a view-dependent dynamic terrain visualization method using strip masks, and we also present our implementations results. We partition our terrain into several blocks, and we pre-compute a set of strip masks of blocks. At run time, to render the terrain, we simply choose the mask of blocks that represent each part of the terrain to meet our desired visual fidelity. We also combine our algorithm with the physical based model of craters and ruts. Our implementations are running smooth running smoothly in real time, and our craters and ruts are very realistic. The experiments prove our method is feasible and valid
