Download 3D Model & Texture Map
Download both a sphere and Mars spherical panoramic image, designed to work together. The sphere's image is texture mapped on the inside. Map the sphere with the panoramic view of Mars. Swipe to view the interactive Mars Spherical Environment Example. The sphere and spherical panorama give the illusion of viewing from Mars.
The model's prepared as a set of arrays ready to load with WebGL.
Float32Array arranged with interleaved
texels and vertices, describes the shape and mapping of the sphere.
For example numbers,
the following listing, represent X, Y, and Z coordinates of the first vertex.
0,0.75, represent S and T texel coordinates mapped to the first vertex.
The sphere is mapped with a texture representing a panoramic view of Mars. NASA photographed Mars. Seven Thunder Software modified the graphic for the sphere with Photoshop.
