Relief mapping is sometimes called relief texture mapping. The two terms being completely interchangeable. Relief mapping is a similar technique to parallax mapping, employing a heightfield map to draw out a 2D texture into three dimensions when rendered. Its main advantage is that it is much more accurate than parallax mapping. Of course the disadvantage is that it is also much more processor intensive.

This book is an attempt to cross-reference the techniques of mapping and charting the physical world, with attempts to chart cyberspace. All of cyberspace, from individual virtual environments, through to the world wide web, as a single cohesive whole, a second world of many worlds, for others to explore, possessing the maps to do so.

A study has been performed on the use of imagination in children as a pain blocker. Whilst not directly connected with VR in pain relief itself, the results do serve to reinforce the position that diverting the child's attention elsewhere during a procedure, utterly diverting it and holding that diversion, is successful in removing the effect of pain.
