Creating wee planets with GDAL
In my last blog post , we projected an equirectangular photograph on a sphere using three.js. Today, we'll use the same panorama to create a wee (miniature) planet. A wee planet is a panorama projected to look like small planets using a stereographic projec...

3 months mapping leave from work - what to do?
I've just started a 3 months study leave from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation where I'm spending my savings to acquire new mapping skills. Originally, my plan was to spend the time in South America but I had to postpone this adventure. Instead, I'll ...

Terrain visualization with three.js and Oculus Rift
My good colleague, Harald K. Jansson , owns an Oculus Rift headset , and he couldn’t resist creating a virtual reality version of my 3D map of Jotunheimen . It’s very impressive, especially when you know that everything runs in the browser. If you’re lucky ...

Terrain building with three.js
In my last blog post , we converted a digital elevation model (DEM) to a WebGL-friendly format ( i.e. easy to transfer and parse by JavaScript in the browser). In this blog post, we'll use the elevation data to build a terrain mesh with three.js .  First we...

Using web map services with three.js
In my previous three.js experiments I've only used static files to load terrains and textures. Jarle Pedersen  at the  Norwegian Mapping Authority  has been experimenting with web map services to create 3D terrains.  His blog post  is only in Norwegian ( go...

Photo spheres with three.js
Ever wanted to create those fancy-looking 360° panoramas? If you mix a mobile phone with three.js and some knowledge about (map) projections, it's quite easy.  I love travelling, especially to mountainous areas of our planet. Taking photos of vast landscape...

Showing GPS tracks in 3D with three.js and d3.js
How can you visualize a GPS track with three.js? The tricky part was the get the projection right so the GPS track would line up with my terrain map of Jotunheimen, and with the help of D3.js I was able to do it. I'm going to use the same GPS track that I'v...

Terrain building with three.js - part 1
Three.js is a very promising tool if you want to add a third dimension to your web maps. In my last blog post , I showed you how easy it was to create a WebGL Earth in the browser. Today, I'm starting a new blog series about terrain building with three.js. ...
