Hematite Ridge portrait

5 DTM's at full texture res, 12k x 6k work in progress so please forgive the misalignment!

Here is a link to a 450 megapixel test render of

Hematite Ridge

over at Gigapan.

Rendering at this level shows up some errors in alignment & textures ( not loading ) but is a good prep for upscaling to 65k pixel output

Any chance you point out where's Oppy or where she'll enter the scene? Thanks

Here is a link to another Gigapan 450 megapixel extravaganza...

Mount Sharp Northwest Flank

And the Flickr version...



I was quite aggressive culling the DTM borders to conform to the chosen viewing angle.

Lots of work in Photoshop to balance out the jigsaw of exposures.

Each of the 5 DTM's were rendered separately, the foreground render then acted as a guide for conforming the rest to the base Mt Sharp render which is visible in the background crater rim and the upper left of the image. A depth pass was used to introduce atmosphere and soften transitions.

An amazing dataset!

I've had some luck studying these with the route maps and another site where you can zoom into HIRISE (though it is offset a bit): http://curiosityrover.com/rovermap1.html
I can surmise for Curiosity that it will enter soon at the right edge of Sean's neat Hematite Ridge rendering, about 40-45% of the way between top and bottom.

You mean Curi, surely? smile.gif

In the most recent Gigapan you can see Murray Buttes at the bottom center right of the image, tracing the route up toward the natural break in the dune field to the left of Ireson hill you can almost discern a path leading up to Hematite Ridge. In time I will make a version with the notional route.

In the first Gigapan rendering, Hematite Ridge, Curi's current position near Ireson Hill is just above the center stage right.

Thanks and haha! Yes Cury, don't ask me why? May be Oppy=hematite for the last 13 years wink.gif

The Gale Crater movie is perhaps the most awesome rendering of planetary image data I've seen. Thank you! It really brought the places Curiosity is exploring to life, which the overhead images don't.

If you ever have the time and inclination, it would be fascinating if the movie could retrace the Rover's journey.

Thanks vjkane, although to be fair there have been awesome animations using the same data over on Youtube since 2010.

I do have a nice 4k animation cooking at the moment but its going to take a while before it is ready.

In the meantime here is another take on the HiRISE coverage of Mt Sharp...



and the 450 megapixel Gigapan version...

Mount Sharp Northwest Flank 2

I grabbed a crop of Sean's "Mount Sharp Northwest Flank" (from Gigapan) and roughly marked Curiosity's route up to sol 1589 (green), it's current position (yellow star) and the latest "notional route" from JPL (red). Hopefully it will be helpful. Sean's work has added another dimension to my awe for this mission.

Thanks Fernando. The wide field view of Curi's journey is a sight to behold!

So my plan is to image the entire mission zone along with the route so far & notional route, in as big an image as Gigapan will host, I'm not sure what their upper limit is. I think Photoshop will only go to 65k pixels square.

The trick will be to get a good angle without making the quilt-work of DTM's too obvious against the lores mesh of Gale Crater.

'Bob'

Here is a 4k video covering a 4 DTM swathe of Mt Sharp



Each DTM was rendered separately then combined in After Effects to blend variable exposures.
