For the second part to this project I wanted to incorporate my interest in making maps and reprojecting 360 degree imagery (like a starmap). I started with three images, a uv map of the night sky, a uv map of the Earth with clouds, and a uv map of the Earth without clouds. I then manipulated these images using my open source image reprojection tool that I built from scratch. I wanted to incorporate this because it's something I'm proud of and I've developed in my free time. I did the math to move every pixel in the following images, and accelerated the code on the graphics processor using OpenGL. I encourage you to visit my website https://danielarnett.github.io/360GL/ and play with the rotation sliders to make your own custom maps!
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
