What I'm trying to do, because it's to provide a visually exciting set of results for a simulation package, is given a time, show what a planet looks like from a given angle.
I've got SPICE and I've been getting comfortable with it. It's good for providing a quaternion to tell how far the planet has rotated from baseline at a given time, and to tell which parts of the surface are visible from where. That takes care of the infrastructure for what I'm trying to do.
What I'm looking for is to add textures or 3D models or something to the project so that I can display a picture of the side of a planet that's showing from given coordinates at a given time.
To explain further, if viewpoint stayed the same and time were advanced in a loop, you'd see the planet rotating.
I've tried Google and github and found lots of things that aren't what I'm after. But it just has to have been done. Worst case, can anyone suggest good search terms?
