Over the last few months we've been playing with an SL-Google Earth mashup using our NewsGlobe app. That work put us into contact with Hayduke Ebisu from the SL Science Centre and Envirolink (and our neighbour in Nari), and Stephane Zugzwang who has built a VR Room in SL (where you stand withing a complete sphere on whose walls are projected hi-rez 360 degree images.
It was only a matter of time before we worked out how to get our NewsGlobe feeds plotted on the inside of one of Stephane's huge spheres, so that with a suitable Earth image you can watch news stories and other global data appear all around you - we call it GeoGlobe. Stephane has done a great job of creating a really compelling interface, complete with flying data points.
For more information read the post at the
Envirolink blog, which also has a SLURL to the demonstrator. If you would like to know more about the system, have a personal demo, or have a real-world application then please contact us, Hayduke or Stephane.
