Summary: 
Vector data differs in the rasterized height field by data type. It is difficult to render dynamic vectors on height field because their shapes and locations may change at any time. This letter proposes a novel method: View-dependent Projective Atlases (VdPAs). As an intermediate data source, VdPAs act as rendering targets which enable height field and vectors to be rasterized at the same resolution. Then, VdPAs can be viewed as super-tiles. State of art height field rendering algorithms can be used for scenario rendering. Experimental results demonstrate that atlases are able to make dynamic vectors to be rendered on height field with real-time performance and high quality.
