    Despite the controversy related to China-India border, this articles show us the importance of Remote Sensing as a strategic tools on Politic and Military      The recent deaths of at least 20 soldiers along the contested border at Ladakh between India and China represents the largest loss of life from a skirmish between the two countries since the clashes in 1967 that left hundreds dead. It also highlights the tensions that have been building along the Line of Actual

    Google Releases Google Maps CarPlay Feature for Testers

    By Lurker,
    This is without a doubt the most anticipated feature of the year for CarPlay users, as Google Maps can now replace Apple Maps on the multi-view screen. Apple originally locked the maps card on the CarPlay dashboard to Apple Maps, which means that users weren’t allowed to configure any other application to display real-time information in this panel. It goes without saying this was quite an issue for many users, especially as Google Maps and the Google-owned Waze are extremely popular c

    GPS reveals volcanic activity under Europe

    By Lurker,
    Scientists have discovered new evidence for active volcanism next door to some of the most densely populated areas of Europe. The study crowdsourced GPS monitoring data from antennae across western Europe to track subtle movements in the Earth’s surface, thought to be caused by a rising subsurface mantle plume. The Eifel region lies roughly between the cities of Aachen, Trier and Koblenz, in west-central Germany. It is home to many ancient volcanic features, including the circular lakes kno

    NASA has launched one of its most crucial science missions to date, the Mars  2020 mission that carries its Perseverance robotic rover. This rover, a successor to the Curiosity robotic explorer, is equipped with sensors specifically designed to help it hopefully fund evidence of ancient, microbiotic life on Mars. Mars 2020 departed from Cape Canaveral in Florida at 7:50 AM EDT (4:50 PM PDT). Perseverance was loaded atop a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, which had a good liftoff

    Historic carbon dioxide decline could hold clues for future climate

    By Lurker,
    A new study led by researchers at The Australian National University (ANU) provides a clearer snapshot of conditions during the last ice age—when global ice sheets were at their peak—and could even lead to better models for future climate projections.   The study demonstrates a new way of recreating ocean conditions in the Atlantic during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM)—around 20,000 years ago.   Lead author Dr. Jimin Yu says scientists have been trying to reconstruct ocean ci

    • what 3d globe you want?  ArcGIS desktop has own dedicated 3d globe like apps, called ArcGlobe or maybe you want to use google earth? that's also using globe apps maybe you need to specify what 3D globe apps you want to use  
    • An underwater volcano off Tonga erupted on Saturday, triggering tsunami warnings and evacuation orders in Japan and causing large waves in several South Pacific islands, where footage on social media showed waves crashing into coastal homes. Japan's meteorological agency issued tsunami warnings in the early hours on Sunday and said waves as high as three metres (9.84 feet) were expected in the Amami islands in the south. Waves of more than a metre were recorded there earlier.   Public broadcaster NHK said no damage or casualties had been reported, interrupting its regular programming to report on the tsunami advisory spanning the entire eastern coast of the Japanese archipelago issued by the country's meteorological agency. In a briefing, a Japan Meteorological Agency official urged people not to go near the sea until the tsunami advisory and more serious tsunami warnings had been lifted. The warnings - the first in more than five years - covered several specific areas.   He said the change in sea levels observed did not follow a familiar pattern of tsunamis following earthquakes. "We do not know yet whether these (waves) are actually tsunami," he told the briefing. Tsunami waves were observed in Tonga's capital and the capital of American Samoa, a U.S.-based tsunami monitor said, following the eruption at 0410 GMT of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai underwater volcano.   The volcano, which lies about 65 km (40 miles) north of Nuku'alofa, caused a 1.2-metre (four-foot) tsunami wave, Australia's Bureau of Meteorology said. The bureau said it continued to monitor the situation but no tsunami threat had been issued to the Australian mainland, islands or territories. Tsunami waves of 83 cm (2.7 feet) were recorded by gauges in the Tongan capital of Nuku'alofa and two-foot waves were seen at Pago Pago, the capital of American Samoa, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. Fiji issued a tsunami warning, urging residents to avoid the shorelines "due to strong currents and dangerous waves". Jese Tuisinu, a television reporter at Fiji One, posted a video on Twitter showing large waves crashing ashore, with people trying to flee in their cars. "It is literally dark in parts of Tonga and people are rushing to safety following the eruption," he said. There were no immediate reports of casualties. In New Zealand, the emergency management agency issued an advisory on tsunami activity for the country's north and east coasts, forecasting strong and unusual currents and unpredictable surges along shorelines in those areas. On Friday, the volcano sent ash, steam and gas up to 20 km (12 miles) into the air, Tonga Geological Services said in a Facebook post. It has a radius of 260 km (160 miles). A tsunami advisory was also in effect for the U.S. and Canadian Pacific coast, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu said. The National Weather Service said tsunami waves along the Oregon and southern Washington coast were expected imminently. High waves were reported in Alaska and Hawaii earlier. In the San Francisco Bay Area of northern California, small parts of the cities of Berkeley and Albany near the bay were ordered to evacuate. source: reuter
    • Hi. What is a basic method to export worldmap layers such as coastlines, but wrapped on a 3d globe, for further use with computer graphics tools ?
