Included in the download are the highest possible resolutions of the chosen texture (satellite, street) and an 8 bit grayscale heightmap, both as PNG file. With this set its possible to create and edit your own 3D maps in the common 3D programs (e.g. Blender, MAYA, 3D Max, Cinema4D, ZBrush), game engines (e.g. Unity, Unreal) or in Photoshop with the aid of our
3D Map Generator ATLAS or TERRAIN.
You can also use these high-res images in the Embed 3D Map set to replace the low-res versions. The loading time will increase afterwards, but the quality and details of the 3D map will appear much better.
The size of the download image depends on the resolution of the used screen. To get the largest possible size, we recommend to use to switch to full screen view when selecting the map section. Depending on the screen resolution the heightmap and the respective texture can reach a size of 4.000 x 3.000 px and more.
The resolution of the 3D map preview is considerably lower (max. 1.000 x 1.000 px) as in the actual download. Texture and heightmap will be exported in the highest possible resolution.
Note: The resolution of the maps depends on the map provider. Satellite maps are currently available up to zoom level 13z, respectively up to 18z for the US and Europe. Street maps are available up to 18z and Top maps up to 17z. We have no influence on the quality of these maps.
