    Talking THE Ernie Wright? : NASA releases 3d map of Moon

    Hey Lightwavers:

    could this be THE Ernie Wright of early Lightwave fame? Also, an interesting resource:

    ...so i guess these would use cylindrical or spherical projection mapping in LightWave ?

    (i don't think these are mercator projections, i could be wrong tho)

    mercator is a method of distortion correction going from spherical to planner not the other way round, you'r stuck with spherical

    Yes, it's THE Ernie Wright. We've ran across each other at a few Siggraphs in the past years.

    Cheers,
