Image Description, by

This false colour image of the north pole of Mars was created by my Planet3d visualisation software and is made up of 3.9 million polygons. The dataset used in this picture was produced from 15Gb of NASA data. 90% of the 2 million height points that make up the dataset are accurate to within 5m. The software renders at 1fps on a PIII 700 although lower resolutions can be selected for better frame rates.

Check out my site for more screenshots.
