Terrain Visualization has become increasingly interesting in recent years because it has wide application backgrounds. In this paper, we summarize the terrain visualization to four categories in terms of digital terrain model, terrain simplification, multiresolution model and terrain reality. Based on the survey, discussion and comparison of existing methods and results, we formalize the concepts and research contents of terrain visualization. At last, the potential applications of this domain are predicated.
