English translation:terrain-following
Explanation:
Another standard term in computer graphics and gaming. "The terrain-following [feature or function] should use [or "be based on"] the software..." -- If the terrain in the simulation is being followed by an aircraft (that is, if the airplane or helicopter is flying very close to the ground, following its contours), then the term "nap-of-the-earth flying" is often used.
