Overlaying Video on a 3D Globe
Last year the Cartography and Geovisualization Group at Oregon State University created an amazing interactive map from NASA's video of A Year In The Life Of Earth’s CO2.
The group's Interactive Map of A Year In The Life Of Earth's CO2 wraps an HTML5 version of NASA's narrated video of a year's Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide concentrations around an interactive globe. This mean that you can zoom in and out and pan the video just as you could an interactive globe.
Greg Tatum has now created a three.js powered interactive globe using the same narrated NASA video, Earth's CO2 overlays the narrated video on top of a three dimensional model of the Earth. As the video plays you can rotate the globe and use your mouse-wheel to zoom in and out.
Earth's CO2 requires a web browser.that supports WebGL.
