This model is intended for those who need nothing less then the highest photorealism for cinema quality renders.
The Ordovician is a geologic period and system, the second of six of the Paleozoic Era, and covers the time between 488.3 to 443.7 million years ago. It follows the Cambrian Period and is followed by the Silurian Period. The Ordovician, named after the Celtic tribe of the Ordovices, was defined by Charles Lapworth in 1879 to resolve a dispute between followers of Adam Sedgwick and Roderick Murchison, who were placing the same rock beds in northern Wales into the Cambrian and Silurian periods respectively. Lapworth, recognizing that the fossil fauna in the disputed strata were different from those of either the Cambrian or the Silurian periods, realized that they should be placed in a period of their own.
This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago during Ordovician 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 Ordovician 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 Ordovician Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
