[gdal-dev] gdal_viewshed

I'm trying the new gdal_viewshed and it is in fact really quick! But the
result is completely different than other viewshed analysis algorithms:



GRASS and Visibility Analysis plugin for QGIS have almost the same result.
The result from gdal_viewshed seems completely overrated. The options I'm
using are [almost] the same in both algorithms.

gdal_viewshed -b 1 -md 28000.0 -ox -41597.922 -oy 71254.049 -oz 21.6 -tz
10.0 -vv 1 -cc 0.85714 -f GTiff path_to_mdt.tif path_to_output.tif

Has anyone else this experience?

Thanks! Best regards,
Pedro Venâncio
