In this paper Hong Kong was taken as a case, the topographic map at a scale of 1: 20,000 was used to create DEM, and Landsat ETM+image was geometrically corrected as a DOM image that was used as 3D surface texture. Under a self-defined projection system, overlay was operated between DOM image and DEM. and 3D terrain visualization was implemented.
