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

The Tertiary is a term for a geologic period 65 million to 2.6 million years ago. The Tertiary covered the time span between the superseded Secondary period and the Quaternary. The period began with the demise of the non-avian dinosaurs in the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event, at the start of the Cenozoic era, spanning to the beginning of the most recent Ice Age, at the end of the Pliocene epoch.

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