This model is intended for those who need nothing less then the highest photorealism for cinema quality renders.
The Miocene is a geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about 23.03 to 5.332 million years ago (Ma). The Miocene was named by Sir Charles Lyell. Its name comes from the Greek words ????? (mei?n, “less”) and ?????? (kainos, “new”) and means 'less recent' because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene. The Miocene follows the Oligocene Epoch and is followed by the Pliocene Epoch. The Miocene is the first epoch of the Neogene Period.
This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago in the Miocene 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 Miocene 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 Miocene Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
