    Scofflaw ships hauled in more than 176,000 tons of Pacific flying squid in North Korean waters in 2017 and 2018. A 55- to 60-meter lighting vessel of Chinese origin near North Korean waters. This vessel had its four arm-like structures deployed and flew both North Korean and Chinese flags.   Satellite imagery has dragged "dark" fishing fleets out into the light.   Orbital observations have revealed extensive illegal fishing of Pacific flying squid (Todarodes pacificus) i

    Marine Species are Shifting Towards the Poles

    By Lurker,
    Global warming has caused a shift in species’ ideal habitats, prompting everything from mushrooms to trees, mammals to amphibians and other terrestrial species to seek out different ecological zones in which to thrive. New research is collecting data on marine species that are also experiencing climate related habitat migrations in greater numbers than scientists anticipated. As species’ normal habitats are becoming warmer, habitat is lost due to human infrastructure, or habitats are becomi

    UrsaNav installs eLoran testbed in South Korea

    By Lurker,
    South Korean is in the early stages of evaluating its eLoran system, but great results are expected based on the UrsaNav-supplied station in Incheon. In August 2018, the Korea Research Institute of Ships and Oceans Engineering (KRISO) awarded UrsaNav, through its agent Dong Kang M-Tech, a contract to supply and install an eLoran transmitter testbed system in South Korea. UrsaNav is the exclusive, worldwide distributor of Nautel’s NL Series transmitters, provided eLoran transmitter tec

    Create Interactive Flow Maps

    Lurker
    By Lurker,
    Flow maps are cartographic visualizations to show the movement of objects, people, or other living things from one location to another. Lines, usually symbolized with an arrow to indicate the direction. Color coding or line width can also then be used to indicate the volume of objects that are moving from one location to another. Airline traffic, animal migration, commuters, and import/exports are all common types of geographic data that are typically shown on a flow map . Ilya Boyandin has

    • 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 ?
