Website: Worldprocessor (many different views on our world)
« on: August 06, 2006, 04:16:43 PM »
Where?

I stumbled upon this, but you can go there directly. The site is right hurr.

What?

Many many globes showing different things.

Hä?

Well, you will see many different pictures of globes. The globes show different things; some represent statistical data, others show ocean currents.

Why?

I think it is quite interesting to look at the world like this. Also it is a fascinating way to show data. Thinking in a global context, so to say. But please see for yourself!

Yes, definitely quite cool. I just wish there were full globe views and, in some cases, more explanation. This is the kind of thing that would work *really* well as a custom overlay in World Wind. You'd be able to zoom in on any area (to the limit of the resolution of the overlay), rotate around and see it from all angles, etc. As it is it's interesting to look at but offers incomplete info.
