Hi Povrayer,

2018 I worked with real height-data of planets and tried some fly-over with help
from Povrays height-fields.
Here one of the Moon (Mare Imbrium) and two from Mars (Vallis Marineris and
Olympus Mons).

The DEM and the visual maps I downlaoded from the former NASA-Site Map-A-Planet
(version 1).
The resolution isnt the best, due to the former download-limit of Map-A-Planet.
Also there is some flickering in the movies, partially by switched-off
anti-aliasing.

The elevation is exaggerated by a factor 1.5 to 2, I dont know the exact values.

But a nice try I think, I would love to get additional and more detailed maps to
play with.
Unfortunately NASA shuts down the old site and replaced it by a much more
complicated one.

By the way:
This is the sub-board to present movies, right? Or the other animation
sub-board?
Its my 2nd post here, thats why I ask.

Ciao,
Mätes
