The following VRML files are available:

- Africa textured model, uncompressed model
- Hurricane Andrew wireframe model
- Hurricane Andrew textured model
- Hurricane Fran wireframe model
- Hurricane Fran textured model

The models were created with the program Flyby.

Both the Andrew and Fran models began as uniform grids of 2500 vertices resulting in 4802 triangles. Using Flyby's mesh simplification, Andrew was reduced to 347 vertices and 688 triangles. Fran was reduced to 492 vertices and 978 triangles.

More information on VRML can be obtained from Silicon Graphics or the VRML consortium.
