I’m excited to lastly share a brand new design undertaking this week! Over the previous yr and a half I’ve been engaged on a group of ten maps on planets, moons, and outer house. To call a number of, I’ve made an animated map of the seasons on Earth, a map of Mars geology, and a map of the whole lot within the photo voltaic system larger than 10km.
Over the subsequent few weeks I wish to share every map alongside the open-source Python code and detailed tutorials for recreating the design. All the astronomy information comes from publicly accessible sources like NASA and the USGS, so I assumed this could be the right undertaking for writing design tutorials (which I’ve been that means to do for some time).
Ahhh, have a look at these colours! Lutz goes to be posting a brand new map from the undertaking periodically over the subsequent few weeks so observe her on Tabletop Whale, Twitter, or Tumblr to tune in.
