Incredibly Detailed, 3D Flyover of Mars Uses NASA’s HiRISE Imagery
Added Apr 12, 2017 | Rate View top rated
In the past 12 years, NASA"s HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite has taken around 50,000 high-resolution stereo images of the Martian terrain from the planet"s orbit, which can be viewed in 3D using special glasses. Now, Finnish filmmaker Jan Fröjdman has transformed HiRISE imagery into a dynamic, three-dimensional, overhead view of Mars - with no need for 3D glasses. Fröjdman stitched the images together along distinctive reference points and rendered them as frames in a video, a process that took three months to complete.
