superb artwork!

Let me share this one from 'the old days' as I 'walk' through my old awalkonmars.com archive to prepare for a new website. Congrats to the MER team, thankyou Spirit!

12 years ago today (Feb 10, 2004) Spirit took this picture:

Things sure were cleaner back then. It seems like yesterday!

A model of Spirit's final stop, compiled with HiRISE DTM & multiple texture passes.

Check it out here in Sketchfab

Sean, that is excellent. I especially like that the terrain seems mounted on a block rather than just a 2D surface. Makes me regret once again all the interesting places Spirit never got to rove. You should maybe try one with exaggerated terrain as well.

Any other locations in mind? Victoria? Marathon Valley?

PS Have you taken a look at the HiRise superresolution products of the Homeplate feature? You could possibly integrate these with your current texture, which I already find very nice.

Thankee!

Marathon Valley was my first stab at this HiRISE malarkey, check it out at the Sketchfab link in my sig.

I will investigate this super resolution HiRISE Home Plate you speak of... I may already have seen it given I reviewed all the HiRISE data I could find. Its important to use the correct satellite image that fits the DTM otherwise there is a lot of warping and hardly anything matches.

Sean I refer to this paper: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/artic...032063315003591

Many thanks for that link Sittingduck... I did read an article a while back about the process and was suitably wowed... now after reading the paper I'm even more impressed. I'm wondering if there is a portal through which I can access their output? Once they get GPU's involved they will be flying through the data!

I hadn't considered exaggerating the terrain, it would be trivial to do however, so I will include that in the next batch.

There are a number of considerations when building these assets for Sketchfab...mesh fidelity, polycount, texture size etc so I will probably revisit something like Home Plate for a more localized attempt when I have refined the process somewhat. Thanks for your interest and suggestions.

It's so rare for anybody to show more than a passing interest in academic work that you'll find scientists and engineers are mostly very responsive to email inquiries about their work. There's a corresponding author listed on every paper; it's worth just contacting them to ask politely for what you need.

Click thru for video...



Blended 3 layers of 2 HRSC & 1 HiRISE datasets.

Hmm... isn't HP starboard side of the Rover? Spirit: gone but not forgotten.

Is the position correct? I have her facing back toward Husband Hill.
