The CGI Moon Kit is manufactured by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, where science visualization specialist Ernie Wright discovered that data he had designed for other purposes was becoming popular with 3D artists.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been circling around the moon for nearly a decade now. They will be able to enjoy creating a very detailed 3D map of the Moon, having imagery and depth data on their hands.
High resolution cameras attached to the orbiter snapped photographs of a crater named after German astronomer Palon H Ludwig von Boguslawsky. In order to recreate the surface of the Moon, a second instrument on LRO was used, which is called a laser altimeter. The United States' premier space agency NASA, which had also tried to establish contact with the lander, said it had a "hard landing" on the moon's surface.
TechCrunch explains, "The laser altimeter works like any typical orbital laser ranger you have around the house". This information tells the device the distance between it and the surface, and therefore its altitude, down to half a meter.
"We do not definitely know what took place then and how it (Vikram) strike the moon's surface area and where", Devereaux reported and red flagged the mission's scale, time and room, which are as fantastic as gone once it falters.
The CGI Moon Kit is free to download. The map is in the form of a displacement map that uses different colors to denote topology instead of height.
