Subject matter for a digital globe is open ended. All manner of global subjects benefit from the spherical representation (Oceanography, atmoshperic sciences, climate change, geophysical, meteorological, environmental, demographics, geo-politics, historical, etc.). But a large spherical display is so engaging that almost any 2D content looks great “in the round”! Check out examples in the OmniGlobe® Gallery.
Any graphic or information that represents a global map or image, or sequence of maps or images, can be re-projected on the spherical OmniGlobe® screen with the correct geometry using ARC software. For the most common geometric map projection (the world as a latitude-longitude grid), the exhibitor/presenter can easily do this with ARC’s OmniExplorer™ software. Beyond single images and “slide show” sequences, ARC supports content in the form of “canned” movies or Animated sequences. Distinctions between the two are:
Examples of other content available for the OmniGlobe® include The Diurnal Earth (rotating earth with night lights), The sun, planets, and major moons of the solar system, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, climate change, plate-tectonics, glaciations, volcanoes & earthquakes, historical simulations and much more.
