Would be interesting to have the possibility to load KML data and display markes, polygons, polylines on the globe87 votes
Visualize 3D terrain instead of the sphere only.
Note: this involves preparing and hosting of a separate tileset which will represent the geometric height by the values of pixels (greyscale). Triangles in the WebGL Earth can be then adjusted by the relevant height (pixel value) loaded from the texture (tile) at given lat/lon position.
Possible datasets to use:
- GTOPO30: global digital elevation model (DEM) ~ 1km x 1km - http://eros.usgs.gov/#/Find_Data/Products_and_Data_Available/gtopo30_info
- SRTM3: Shuttle Radar Topography Mission ~ 90m x 90m - http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/srtm/
- CGIAR: 90m
- ASTER GDEM: Aster Global Digital Elevation Model ~ 30m x 30m…74 votes
Possibility to load and unload different tile layers from the 3D-Globe, e.g. myCustomTileLayer.removeFrom(earth). Now it is just possible to add(!) new custom tile layers and not to remove any.68 votes
integrate full openlayers capabilities (http://openlayers.org) (WMS, WFS, GeoRSS, KML ...)33 votes
This demo consumes app. 50 % of CPU cyles on an Athlon 2.8 GHz machine. Thats a lot!19 votes
Display houses and buildings available in the Collada format.
More efficient then direct support for Collada format would be to convert the models in advance into JSON files:
The initial implementation should probably load the model and locate it in a correct place on Earth programmatically.
For efficient displaying of whole town composed of larger amount of models a server side preprocessing or dynamic streaming must be implemented - with several level of details (generalized version of model for distant view, detailed for close view once it is loaded).

Could you describe how I would load a set of markers in a geojson file onto the globe. Would it work the same as leaflet?9 votes
At the momet WebGL model have an annoying hole ath the top and bottom and also a stripe without a texture.
I suppose, it would be nice to use some generic texture for this problem places7 votes
A link for sharing the current view on the currently selected layer5 votes
Google Maps street view already supports WebGL including 45 degrees view, 3d view, terrain,etc. as an opt. in feature. I would like to be able to see street view and Google maps when using pull down list options. Also, see what you can do with Google Earth.3 votes
Add Map Tiles from ESRI ArcGIS Server- Rest API3 votes
You could try using a scalable mask to avoid people to see the polygons in full view.
I probably have a workaround for the pole polygons i don't see right now.
i made a similar work under flash with no zoom, for a site about mars terraformation
and if you want ask me for ideas and code
i'll be glad to participate3 votes
Scroll should rotate the globe while two keyboard keys should zoom in/out3 votes
hello,where i can find some examples about 3D terrain? source code is better。thank you2 votes
just curious if you've considered the Skyline Software patent for sending 3D data over the internet, and how that might affect the downloading of terrain data into WebGL Earth2 votes
I added 3 markers in some lat and lang, i need to remove while we focus on that marker2 votes
I meet such a problem. My tiles projection is not different from regular,
which I mean for example WebGLEarth tiles matrix is square(such as 4x4,8x8
etc), but our projection is different as the tiles matrix is rectangle
(such as 4x2,8x4 etc).
our Y axis is half smaller than the regular Y axis.
who can help you about this problem?thank you very much1 vote
