Hey all, Im not sure if anyone has seen these before, but I found these huge earth maps. There is one color map (109mb!!), normal maps, spec maps and more. I havent looked at any of them due to their size but here they are if you would like to look: http://celestia.h-schmidt.net/earth-vt/

You can also get some even larger ones at www.geotorrent.org in JPEG 2000 or ECW format. Unfortunately the site is down due to a database error at the moment it seems.

Plug: You're likely to need infiniMap to render them though, the 80640x43200 pixels image takes up more than 10GB of RAM.

Cheers,
Mike

yeah, I doubt I will be using them. Just thought someone interested in high detail-normal mapped earth modeling might be interested ;)
