Babylon.JS showcase – Wind Data Simulation
Here’s an interesting little challenge – getting a vertexshader to render over 100.000 bits of information on screen reliably – without causing the browser to spazz out or crash. If you thought it couldn’t be done, you thought wrong, and you can find the proof right here. The results are pretty interesting, especially considering how they added the globe map with country selector ability to the whole project. You can start the weather animation by hitting the “VEndEe GLobE” button in the middle of the screen. It even allows you to map the clouds, as well as the cloud gradient over the course of 4 months this simulated globe has been programmed to showcase. It’s a neat little project that can be learned from.
