    I have a gift for you, huge Earth maps!

    Where can a post these 21600 x 21600 maps? Each covers one quadrant of the Earth, eight maps total, four maps cover each hemisphere. Total zip is about 1.5 GB. All from a NASA project I did about 5 years ago. They are sweet. One trick I do is use one map and tile it over the sphere if a shot will show just one quadrant or less.

    Share this on other forum and we'll see if we can get these in your hands!

    PNG format.

    They are those maps, just most people don't know about the very large ones.

    I can probably help you out with that. I can provide space and bandwidth for those maps. I'll set it up later since I'm late for work.. Ouch! :P

    Thanks in advance Shrox/Bitboy - would be most interested in playing around with these! BTW do you have a link to an image/video of the project you worked on?

    There's so much good stuff on the NASA website - and the other one - I just thought it would be a shame if people didn't know what else was up there

    Oh yes, but one often has to wade through stuff to find what you are looking for. They also have a very good model of the ISS, although some modules are more detailed than others.

    I'll upload it tonight, thanks. I think the community will appreciate it. Maybe stobbs could post some nice finds too.
