Mare Orientale cropped from a 8-pixel per degree cylindrical projection of the Moon. 282 x 282 pixel original: flat, no wrapping to the sphere. This is a test of the program to generate the stereo lithography files: the image above is the stl processed by meshlab, then toned up with Photoshop. The top resolution currently available is 512 pixels per degree, with 16, 64, 128, and 256 intermediate resolutions. I have been granted use of a high-performance computer with 128 Gb of ram which should allow me to produce highly-detailed models. Stay tuned.
ldem_4.jp2 texture-mapped onto a sphere, then rotated to the Orientale Basin.
