He covers this briefly in the first 2 minutes.
Just shooting from the hip here, but it sounds like a functional emulation of
this would be to start with a very large, high-def version of the texture and
then make a few smaller versions. Then just have an array of the filenames and
the texture could probably be automagically sampled at the desired resolution
using a polynomial function like I did in the vortex scene or using a spline
like Ingo is doing.
Maybe there's some kind of MOA (minutes of angle) calculation that initially
gets done to optimally set the different image_map resolutions...?
