Videos in 3D

Video, on a globe? in 3D? interactive? in the browser? Yes we can! Best in Chrome.


NASA last year released a video (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, isn’t it?

By the way, you’re looking at a sneak preview of our mapalupa service. Feel free to sign up for early access if we got your interest.

We make use of Cesium for the globe visualization. Many thanks to their team for the great Open Source software.
