This code can generate illumination maps of Mars from Digital Terrain Model.

To generate the maps the user have to prepare a DTM in geotiff format, in geographical proj. (Lat, Lon) and Mars sphere IAU 2000 (3396190.0 km)

1) Run SolaPar to calculate the matrix with solar parameters for one date or a range between two. This can generate a bunch of files deppending the range. It will ask for an initial date, a final date and a time-step in hours.

2)Run Marslux to generate the illumination maps. using the same DTM and the files generated by SolaPar
