How is Mars texture?
Its surface is rocky, with canyons, volcanoes, dry lake beds and craters all over it. Red dust covers most of its surface. Mars has clouds and wind just like Earth. Sometimes the wind blows the red dust into a dust storm.
What is the texture of Venus?
Rocky ground lies beneath the layers of clouds. But unlike Mars and Mercury, which are both scarred by craters, Venus has a relatively smooth surface. Early in the history of the solar system, while planets such as Venus were forming, the cloud of dust and rock orbiting the sun was a chaotic place.
What is AO texture?
An Ambient Occlusion or AO map is a grayscale map which contains lighting data. It is not typically used as its own map, and is instead usually combined with the diffuse map to bake in soft shadows.

What are the different size versions of the Earth map?
This comes in 2k, 4k, and 10k versions in color, as opposed to the maximum 2k size of the NASA version of this map (higher resolution versions are available on the paid page only because of their size). Be sure to have a look at the tutorials page for a special rendering tip for using this map.
Is there a texture map of the Earth?
There are large land areas of varying color, and it can be difficult to find a suitable texture map in the public domain. There are vast areas of open water which are both specular and reflective. The planet is shrouded by layers of complex clouds with varying opacities. And the planet is blanketed by a thick atmosphere.
What is the 10K version of the Earth map?
The 10K version is VERY large, so make sure you really need that much detail. This is derived from USGS DEM data, with the addition of the Arctic ice areas which do not show up on USGS data (since they are not solid land masses.) Use this to control specularity and reflectance of the ocean surface.
