Interactive Data Visualization, Inc. (IDV) develops software products with a focus on both off-line and real-time 3D applications for the game development, visual simulation, engineering visualization, and animation industries. IDV created exceptionally realistic trees for a municipal revitalization visualization project, leading the team to launch a website that offered these trees on the web in 2002. A steady, growing response, particularly from video game developers, led to the successful launch of SpeedTree later that same year. This set IDV in a new direction – building SpeedTree into the best foliage solution for the game and movie industries, with over 1,000 licenses worldwide in more than 50 countries. Vortex® Studio’s vegetation library is based on SpeedTree’s technology.
