[fixed version — dev derby submission had a one-line alpha channel bug :-(]
With WebGL, maps no longer need to be stuck in pre-rendered projections. This example takes a flat satellite image of the globe and animates turning it "inside-out" using just one of many cartographic reprojections now possible in the browser.
