Attenuation Map

An attenuation map is a type of texturemap layered onto an object or a whole scene, which contains signal strength details, for example of lighting, and how quickly the signal strength attenuates with distance and direction from source. They tend to be greyscale, with values between 0 (black) and 1 (white).

The map is used in pre rendered scenes to speed placement of lighting and other area effects by lookup rather than by calculation.
