A short post today, with some visuals. I used some Blue Marble imagery from NASA - one layer was topography and the other was the colour image of the earth for August - and then I used the prelease v2 of Aerialod to visualise it. I tweaked the Blue Marble colours slightly and the elevation and bathymetry (in the final images) is greatly exaggerated, for effect.
I had a bit of fun with this. And this is the result.
|NASA Blue Marble + topography
|A few bumps in Europe and North Africa
|Some nice colours and interesting bumps here
|A view across most of North America
|A slightly different angle on South America
|I quite like this perspective, very interesting
|Gosh, The Himalayas are quite big
|So many mountains here!
|Another pretty interesting view
|Same as the first one, but with a few more light effects
That's all for now :)
|With exaggerated bathymetry too
|Classic mid-Atlantic wrinkles
|Maps without New Zealand should not exist
