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

The Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event, which occurred approximately 65.5 million years ago (Ma), was a large-scale mass extinction of animal and plant species in a geologically short period of time. Widely known as the K–T extinction event, it is associated with a geological signature known as the K–T boundary, usually a thin band of sedimentation found in various parts of the world. K is the traditional abbreviation for the Cretaceous Period derived from the German name Kreidezeit, and T is the abbreviation for the Tertiary Period (a historical term for the period of time now covered by the Paleogene and Neogene periods). The event marks the end of the Mesozoic Era and the beginning of the Cenozoic Era. With 'Tertiary' being discouraged as a formal time or rock unit by the International Commission on Stratigraphy, the K–T event is now called the Cretaceous–Paleogene (or K–Pg) extinction event by many researchers.

This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago during the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event . 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 Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event 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 Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
