Video, on a globe? in 3D? interactive? in the browser? Yes we can! Best in Chrome.
NASA last year released a video (opens new window) (Credit: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center) showing how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe from an ultra-high-resolution computer model. It provides a stunning new look at plumes of carbon dioxide swirling and shifting as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources.
Watch the video with the globe rotated to show the north pole. Astonishing new perspective compared to the plain video (opens new window), isn't it?
We make use of Cesium (opens new window) for the globe visualization. Many thanks to their team for the great Open Source software.
