Earth Tweets

This is a mashup of the Google Data Arts Team's WebGL Globe project and the Twitter Streaming API. A random sampling of live data is piped in from Twitter to a Node.js server, then sent to the browser using a WebSocket connection and mapped onto a WebGL map of the planet using Three.js.

Click on the planet and drag around. Use mousewheel or up and down arrows to zoom.
