What is it?
This is an interactive version of Monday’s sketch. It’s another attempt at rendering an image from a Mars Orbiter Laser Altimetry data file. It’s also confounding, infuriating, and not working. I can’t quite get my head wrapped around the bitwise operations and the bitmasking. It’s getting a wider range of colors, and it’s revealing more detail in the image, but I don’t understand why the colors aren’t smooth.
