I've been nerding out over the data that NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration makes available to the public lately and I've made something I'm pretty excited about... I've combined the heightmap data and satellite imagery they provide on the Gale Grater as well as some rock shaders to make this equirectangular projection. Now you can see what it would look like to stand in the Gale Crater :-) Enjoy! Obvious but necessary note: I'm not affiliated with NASA in any way.
