Texture Map

Texture map is an image that is used by OpenGL to color the rasterized pixels.

Most of texture maps must by square and power-of-two to be able to work in most of hardward. Modern hardware allows loading non-power-of-two textures, but texture maps are still made power-of-two to support older GPUs.
