Virtual globe & sky...
出会い系サイトで知り合えた女の子。 何度もやり取りを繰り返してやっと漕ぎ着けた出会い。 けれども、実際に会って話してみれば、相手は何と未成年……。 確かに自分よりも年下だろうなとは思っていたけれども、未成年だとは思わなかった。 Google Earth kmz links/files

Earth Knowledge WISSDOM is customizable and can incorporate information management, social collaboration, maps and virtual globes, big-data analysis, and business intelligence / decision-making tools into a cohesive web-based application for business and research enterprises. The WISSDOM design has evolved through years of working on integrative and collaborative projects. Information technology has transformed how enterprises work. However, if web applications aren’t easy to use, customers become frustrated and underutilize them, wasting time and money, as well as not getting the maximum benefit for their business. WISSDOM specializes in providing a simple, intuitive, elegant and engaging user interface and experience (UI/UX).

Who has not been dazzled and intrigued when lifting his gaze to the celestial vault on a clear, dark night? The spectacle of those fleeting and distant lights racks both our eyes and our brains. Is this star farther away than that one, or is it simply less luminous? Top Five Virtual Sky Simulators

[TL;DR: Google appears to be voluntarily tampering with its maps to appease the local populations of Russia and Ukraine, rather than being forced to do so by local laws, which was the case until now.] What can we infer about Google’s technology, politics and business from observing its approach to mapping Crimea, a few weeks after the invasion and subsequent annexation of the region by Russia? Technology: We’ve long known Google has the ability to serve different mapping datasets to different Google top-level domain properties. For example, different-language versions of Google Maps will show you different toponyms. However, some local versions of Maps also differ in their boundaries: In China, ditu.google.cn shows Arunachal Pradesh as being Chinese, rather than disputed; in India, maps.google.co.in shows Aksai Chin as being Indian, rather than disputed. And in South Korea, maps.google.kr prevents you from zooming in on satellite imagery.

Nooblast Project inspired by the old days Noösphere concept. Visualization picks the real-time data from public APIs and calculates overall strength of signal (recent network buzz) for two given keywords. Some picked events have geolocation information, so they mapped on the globe in the exact points. The overall strength visualized around the globe as “noo”-cloud, the size of which reflects event streams and shaped by geotagged data, building light abstract visual structures-snapshots in space for each term. It explores abstract visual component of generated crowd sourced info streams as the visual connection attaching you to the pulse of planet. NOOBLAST | Pavel Risenberg

The WebGL Globe is an open platform for geographic data visualization. We encourage you to copy the code, add your own data, and create your own. If you do create your own globe, please share it with us. We will post our favorite links below.
Google Search Globe | maptd Today, Google announced the launch of a simple 3D visualization platform called the WebGL Globe. The open platform is designed to display large volumes of geographic data on top of a 3D virtual globe, inside your web browser. Google has provided a couple of examples: A visualization of a days worth of queries in Google Search. Spikes are coloured by language. Height represents the volume of queries from that location.Secondly, an interactive guide to world population density.
NASA World Wind, an open-source virtual globe with stars and advanced atmosphere & sunlight effects A virtual globe is a 3D software model or representation of the Earth or another world. A virtual globe provides the user with the ability to freely move around in the virtual environment by changing the viewing angle and position. Compared to a conventional globe, virtual globes have the additional capability of representing many different views on the surface of the Earth. These views may be of geographical features, man-made features such as roads and buildings, or abstract representations of demographic quantities such as population. On November 20, 1997, Microsoft released a popular offline virtual globe in the form of Encarta Virtual Globe 98, followed by Cosmi's 3D World Atlas in 1999. Virtual globe
