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

Novopangea is a possible future supercontinent, postulated by Roy Livermore, now at the University of Cambridge, in the late 1990s, assuming closure of the Pacific, docking of Australia with eastern Asia, and northward motion of Antarctica. Amasia, Novopangea, and Pangea Proxima are discussed in the book Supercontinent by Ted Nield, and illustrated in 'Pangaea, the comeback' in the New Scientist magazine issued 20 October 2007

This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago in the Novopangea Continent. Notice that the continents are of a differnt 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 Novopangea and other visualizations depicting continental shift.

The maps (8000x4000) are so detail, 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 Novopangea Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
