Mandelbrot Maps


For each point in the famous Mandelbrot set fractal, there is a unique Julia set fractal parametrised by that point. Mandelbrot 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.

It also aims to be one of the fastest fractal generators available for Android, optimised to take advantage of all the available processing power on your device.

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.

Mandelbrot Maps is open-source software - you can find the source on my GitHub account, which is linked on this page as the developer website.

This Android port of Mandelbrot Maps is based on the original web app created by Iain Parris (http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/wadler/mandelbrot-maps/mmaps.html, http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/publications/thesis/online/IM080583.pdf) and further developed by Edward Mallia (http://edwardmallia.com/mandelbrotmaps/), and Taige Liu. All versions were done under the supervision of Philip Wadler (http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/wadler/) at the University of Edinburgh.

Recent changes:
Brought up to date with Android 4, fixed a crash in the Julia fractal view and ported the project to the Gradle build system.

A fresh approach Very nice app, it's lovely moving your finger over the Mandelbrot Set and seeing how the corresponding Julia Set changes. Thanks x

Very cool & easy to use This is the best intro to Julia and Mandelbrot sets I have seen.

Great Showing renderning times by default seems annoying and default colouring schema may be better, does not look well for me at least at startup.. Otherwise it is a very nice, fast and intuitive viewer that makes great use of the touch screen.

AMAZING I was just an average person trying to show someone the M-Set online when I discovered this app. Words cannot describe how phenomenal navigating through these maps are! WOW.
