Space 4 Case | Solar System

There are more planets in the solar system than Mars...
 
I've focused to Mars in the last three years, but there are more planets in the solar system to visualizise. With the Cassini-Huygens probe more data and images are available to use and make cylindrical maps and strata (for the rings).

Most of the images are made with home made cylindrical maps and strata. I enhanced also cylindrical maps and added for example the very faint rings of the gasplanets. These images were made for the National Geographic Magazine map (December 2006) of the solar system and for the space issue in the fall of 2008.

A few renderings are made with models of:
