The Martian

Solar System

Create a custom world map generator module using a gaming framework or engine of your choice that leverages altimeter, terrain and imagery data to render realistic worlds.  This will involve the use of a World Map Tile Service client to leverage over 1 TB of Mars and Vesta data for use in world generation.


The Martian is a Blender script that pulls data from the Viking Color Mosaic and DEM Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter datasets. This data is used to render terrain based on the martian surface.

This tool can be used to create realistic Martian environments for blender games.
