Interactive Earth Globe 3D



Interactive Earth 3D allows to rotate a globe and call actions after clicking on the defined hotspots. This animated globe uses the HTML5 feature called WebGL. No plug-ins (e.g. Flash) are required. You can add your own hotspots, connect and customize them:
  • position (longitude and latitude)
  • color
  • title
  • action
  • These actions are available:
  • open an image in the build-in lightbox
  • show a text or html content in the build-in lightbox
  • open a hyperlink
  • call a JavaScript callback
  • call your own JavaScript code
  • Following parameters are editable too:
  • earth radius
  • rotation speed
  • sun intensity
  • path to the directory with texture
  • How does it work?

    Just adda a <div> element to your html code: <div id="globe"> ... </div> Create a <div> element within it to add a hotspot: <div class="poi" latitude="51.179" longitude="-1.826" label="Stonehenge"> </div>
