Around the globe : wind data simutlation and boat race tracking data

Recommended Posts


Maybe some of you have already seen a short video of this project, it's now online !


The project is about 50 mo... this is due to the number of wind data files (4 by day during 100 days). These files are encoded in png and directly interpreted by the vertex shader (for wind direction and force, one data by degree on earth, more than 50000 'wind particles' interpolated and updated each frame ). The cloud mode maybe slow on some computer (due to alphablending I think). Click on Vendee globe to start, 'explore' let you click on country and see the name. 

I would be happy to have feedback how it works (and if it works) on yours computers or mobile/tablet (even if  the project has not been designed and conceived for these devices).
