EXQUISITE MIDDLE-EARTH-FROM-SPACE IMAGES
Travel to the land of hobbits and wizards, elves and orcs!

Created by Outerra, using the M-E digital elevation model |
 Underwire February 4, 2014 at WIRED

JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth is still the undisputed champ of fantasy worlds beloved by cartographers. Several projects over the years have tried to map the land of Lord of the Rings—some great, some unrealized. Now, however, two of them together have gone beyond simple drawings and created a set of stunning renders.

  • Outerra, based in Slovakia, has created a “3D planetary engine” that purports to be able to render a world in full detail, from space all the way down to pebbles on the surface.
  • Steve Edwards and Carl Lingard started the ME-DEM (Middle-earth Digital Elevation Model) Project in 2006, with the ultimate goal of rendering the entirety of Middle-earth in open-source data. Last year, they exported their data into the Outerra engine.

IMAGES

  1. Middle Earth: seen from space—with labels
  2. Middle Earth: Frodo’s journey traced in red
  3. Mountains of Mordor
  4. Erebor: the Lonely Mountain
  5. Mountains of Minas Tirith

“Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.”
