Affine texture mapping

This demonstrates using random starting points for a set of vertices, and then spreading the points evenly over a sphere by simulation of physical constraints (in this case the points try to be as far as possible away from their neighbours).
This uses an image as a texture to map onto the surface of the sphere.
Click and drag to rotate.
