Dynamic Earth Dome Prototype: Hemisphere

This visualization was a prototype affiliated with the 'Dynamic Earth', a proposed Earth science planetarium show. The visualization shows the global biosphere from the SeaWiFS instrument with ice and snow overlayed.

The images were rendered using a fish eye technique so that they would project properly onto a planetarium dome.
