We are looking into creating new globe video visualizations with different datasets. We have another really nice example provided by NASA (Credit: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center) which shows a 12 month cycle of plant life on earth.
To get additional information on what colors represent and to have a closer look at the globe click on the fullscreen button (on the top right)!
It was easily possible to create this animated widget thanks to mapalupa!
We have written another post with some nice imagery as video on the globe in a previous blog post.
