Marth Crater   Leave a comment

Marth Crater derived from 512 pixel per degree LDEM produced by the LOLA science team.  The crater is 7km in diameter; at 59 meters per pixel that’s a bit more than a hundred pixels.  The data selected was 351 pixels square.  Marth looks like a concentric crater, but may be a double hit instead of volcanic in origin.  While the data is labeled 512 pixels per degree, you can see the stripes of low-res and the mismatched seams.  Animated in Blender 2.62, with the sun moving across the sky.  It looks best if you are a few feet away from the screen.
