Why is texture mapping used?
Texture mapping is used for adding detail and texture (in the form of a bitmap image) to a 3-D object or color to a graphical 3-D model. Edwin Catmull in 1974 first used texture mapping on computer-generated graffiti. This method essentially mapped and merged pixels on a 3-D surface.
What texture mapping means?
In computer graphics, the application of a type of surface to a 3D image. A texture can be uniform, such as a brick wall, or irregular, such as wood grain or marble. The common method is to create a 2D bitmapped image of the texture, called a “texture map,” which is then “wrapped around” the 3D object.
