Virtual South Georgia
What started off as a little zero-budget technical experiment in my spare time inadvertently turned into a bit of an epic. Anyway, I started getting my head around some technical things I wanted to figure out, so it’s all good. Hope you enjoy it.
If there are mistakes regarding place names please let me know (comment form below) – I’ve only been there virtually, but it’s one for the bucket-list.
A preliminary test fly-over of South Georgia, a sub-Antarctic Island. The flight begins at Grytviken, passes three historic whaling stations and then circumnavigates the island. This presents fascinating possibilities for visualizing the historic traverse of the island by Ernest Shackleton in 1916, as well as contemporary scientific data visualization.
It’s just a test at this stage – checking the abilities and limitations of this technical approach. A few issues to resolve.
I will add notes and further visualizations as it evolves.
