This page contains links on landscapes provided by Stellarium users.

NOTE: For version 0.9.x, the landscape file layout, contents and installation method has changed slightly. See this page for landscapes for the new version.

General notes on installation of new landscapes

Specific instructions are given for each landscape.

  1. Copy one or more .png file to a specific directory
  2. Editing the landscape.ini file

The instructions for each landscape mention the <config root> directory. Details of what this means can be found here.

After installing a new landscape, you'll need to re-start Stellarium for changes to take effect. If all is well, you should see a new section in the configuration windows in the landscape tab.

More information about the ways to make new landscapes can be found in the user guide.

Paul Bourke - Landscape Collection

bourke.jpg Paul Bourke has collected several landscapes on this page (scroll down). Locations include Australia, Cambodia, India. They are full 360 degree fish-eye images so you can roll right down and look at the ground.

Download

Save the landscape files from Paul's web page.

Installation

  1. Copy the landscape files into the <config root>/textures/landscapes directory
  2. Edit the <config root>/data/landscapes.ini file, adding sections as they they appear on Paul's web page.

Barry Gerdes - Beaumont Hills, Sydney, Australia

beaumont-hills.jpg Barry made an interesting multiple-image landscape from the rooftop of his house. You can find a detailed account of how this was done in the Stellarium User Guide.

Download

Installation

BrendaEM - San Jose, California, USA

sanjose-thumb.png This panorama was made using Nasa's WorldWind. Screenshots were taken at 45 degree increments. The screenshots were layered and stitched together, and then offset until the the Northern mountains were aligned. A landscape such as this could be made of any location in the world. There is a plug-in for WorldWind called "BigScreenshot," that may make the process easier, but not automate it. A plug-in could be written to do this entire process automatically.
