These visualizations were created for the planetarium dome show film called Dynamic Earth, produced by Tom Lucas in cooperation with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and Spitz, Inc. Their format is in a fish-eye projection, called domemaster, which is why they look circular. In a dome, the image fills the dome's hemisphere so that the parts near the bottom of the image are low and in front of the viewer, the top of the image is behind the viewer, and the left and right sides are to the left and right of the viewer. The domemaster format was created by rendering 7 separate 2048x2048 camera tiles: 6 at different rotational angles aroung the center axis and one looking overhead. The tiles were then reprojected and stitched together to form the final domemaster at a 4096x4096 resolution.
