Cartography for fictional worlds

The project’s goal is the procedural planetary maps generation on the scale of a full size planet. Here we take into account the spherical (or similar) geometry of the planet surface and make complete river systems with procedural river generation process considering terrain erosion and flow rate of water. The results of a planet calculation are presented as data instantly suited for existing Geographic Information System (GIS) software.

Examples of planets

Nishke. Here there are large water areas (oceans) with rare islands.


Shkay. On this planet the land is artificially placed into two tight groups of continents and islands.


On planet Mandelbrot the ancient alien civilization left a message in the form of the continents.
