The status bar displays the current frame rate. Note that TerrainView™ is only rendering if necessary. If the camera is not moving and no animation is running, the frame rate will drop to 0.
While loading data, a snake-style progress bar is displayed.
For TerrainView-Globe™, additional information is displayed while terrain data is loaded (paged in). The status bar displays “Paging ... (T:? E:? V:? A:?)” where the letters stand for Texture (Image), Elevation, Vector and Annotation data and the numbers next to them indicate how many tiles (chunks of data) are still scheduled for paging.
