More About This Demo From The Author

[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.

For technical background on a more involved experiment, check out one of my early posts on this research: http://cloudcartography.com/post/2814029307/making-the-world-go-round
