AbstractThis report describes the 3-dimensional visualization of icebergs in the Grand Banks region of Canada. Seventy-nine icebergs have been animated to provide an informative view of actual icebergs showing keels, sails and complete icebergs. The data for the visualization was obtained from the Canatec (1999) iceberg shape database. The data is presented in an Access database. This report describes the visualization procedure and discusses the problems and limitations of 3D visualization of complex shapes. It also presents a users-guide to the visualization database.
