Description
This model is intended for those who need nothing less then the highest photorealism for cinema quality renders.

The Mississippian is a subperiod in the geologic timescale or a subsystem of the geologic record. It is the earliest/lowermost of two subperiods of the Carboniferous period lasting from roughly 359 to 318 Ma (million years ago). As with most other geochronologic units, the rock beds that define the Mississippian are well identified, but the exact start and end dates are uncertain by a few million years. The Mississippian is so named because rocks with this age are exposed in the Mississippi River valley.

This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago in the Mississippian period . Notice that the continents are of a different shape then they appear today. The shape of the continents is what scientist believe they looked like during this time frame.

It is the best choice available for cinema quality renders of the Mississippian Period and other visualizations depicting continental shift.

The maps (8000x4000) are so detailed, you can see natural rivers and lakes throughout the continents. These rivers and lakes are procedurally placed using a new method I developed so they are very natural looking and they span throughout the entire high resolution image. The maps look as if they were from a satellite looking down on the earth during that time period.

The Mississippian Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
