Bump Mapping: An extension of the technique Of TEXTURE MAPPING to create more realistic 3D images, in which an additional BITMAP (the bump map) applied to a surface contains not colour data but small displacements to be applied to the surface normal at each point. After the image is rendered, these displacements alter the angles of reflected rays in such a way as to convey the illusion of surface relief, even though the surface actually remains completely smooth.
