Project 1: First Steps with VTK

Task 1 - Height Map Visualization (HeighMap.py)

The overall result turned out well, and it's surprising how the closely the RGP-mapped values resemble the truth colors of Earth.



Task 2 - The World is *NOT* Flat (EarthMap.py)

Again, the results turned out very well, with the high resolution texture adding more realism.



Task 3 - The Inexorable Rise of the Oceans (SeaRise.py)

The results turned out well, but the application is very slow on Medium resolution on my computer.

The vtkClipPolyData leads to some rough edges around land masses.
