Fractal Maps

For each point in the famous Mandelbrot set fractal, there is a unique Julia set fractal parametrised by that point. Fractal Maps is a fractal viewer designed to demonstrate the relationship between the two by generating the relevant Julia fractal in real-time as you move a pin across the Mandelbrot set.

This fractal viewer uses Renderscript, so that both the CPUs and GPUs in your devices are used, to make it one of the fastest fractal viewers available on the Play store.

Move around the fractals by dragging with one finger and pinch with two to zoom in and out. Hold your finger down to drop a pin and explore the Julia set.

If you find a particularly beautiful spot, you can save the image or share it with friends.

Fractal Maps is open-source software - you can find the source on my GitHub account, which is linked on this page as the developer website. The source code is also available at https://github.com/voxelcarrot/FractalMaps

This work builds on that of the following people:
* Alasdair Corbett, who created the Android port of Mandelbrot Maps: https://github.com/withad/Mandelbrot-Maps-on-Android
* Edward Mallia: http://edwardmallia.com/mandelbrotmaps/
* Taige Liu
* Iain Parris, who created the original Mandelbrot Maps: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/wadler/mandelbrot-maps/mmaps.html, http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/publications/thesis/online/IM080583.pdf
