The HoloGlobe Project (Version 2)

This animation was produced for the Smithsonian Institution's HoloGlobe Exhibit which opened to the public on August 10, 1996. The various orthographic data sets showing progressive global change were mapped onto a rotating globe and projected into space to create a holographic image of the Earth. Showing Earthandapos;s atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere are dynamic, changing on timescales of days, minutes, or even seconds. This animation is a revised version of Animation #96 [The HoloGlobe Project (Version 1)].
