VENUS COLOR SURFACE TEXTURE AND BUMP MAPS


I edited a new texture for the venus surface based in two images of the jpl photojournal,PIA256 and PIA255, with a total resolution of 12k. It has a lot of gaps so I filled the biggest ones with parts of another venus surface image of 4k resolution from the Steve Albers website. There is still a lot of small gaps uncovered present in both maps, but overall I'm pretty satisfied.

For the the bump map I made two options.

First one is a bump map of only 2k resolution based in this topographic map property of Calvin J. Hamilton. I heavy modified it, and it's not a scientifical work, it's just an approximation to a true altitude map.

The second bump map is just the 12k surface map grayscaled that looks a lot of better than the previous one. It's not a true elevation map but it coincides in the bigger areas.

Finally don't forget to disable the clouds and atmospheres to see the Venus surface.
