3D Visualization of IPY Projects in Google Earth
  • General public
  • Students - in general
In coordination with the IPO and many volunteers, we created a Google Earth KML file that geolocated each IPY project, along with a brief description and any data or more elaborate KML that the project wanted to add. The KML also contained an overview and explanation of what IPY was all about, including its history and its goals. The application was hosted on the main page of the IPO for the duration of the 4th IPY.
