Virtual Earth takes the form of a Gaiasphere, an interactive digital theatre housed in a large (3.2 m diameter) back-projected hemisphere with which animations of changes happening on the earth’s surface can be shown. From a touch screen you will be able to select different views of our changing earth, such as the earth at night, ozone hole evolution, earth surface temperatures, earth core structure or interactive atmospheric predictions. Further animations will be developed in the future. Virtual Earth will enable a better understanding of climate change within a global perspective, and is funded by the Lotteries Board.
