Spin the Earth

Full Screen

Drag your mouse vertically to spin the Earth. Drag it to the bottom of the frame (100%) to view Antarctica; drag it to the top (0%) to search for Santa.

This map uses an orthographic projection with D3.js and Topojson to draw a map of the world’s countries onto a spinning globe, rendered here with a graticule that is 10° by 10°.

The world countries polygons were downloaded from ArcGIS.
