Our planet is connected in so many ways. Rail systems, the Internet, roads and highways, navigable rivers and more. A new app from Celestial Dynamics, released just a few days ago on June 21st, 2017 illustrates these connections beautifully. The app is called “Connected Earth”. Connected Earth beautifully illustrates the connections that make up our modern way of life and does it from a global perspective.
Connected Earth will display various connections on earth with a series of overlays that wrap around an interactive 3D globe. Individual overlays represent roads, trains, rivers, flights, ships, the internet, science, cities, and oceans.
Blend layers to see connections like how the continents are connected to the internet via the cables running on the bottom of the oceans. See where populations have gathered and the transportation routes that connect them.
Celestial Dynamics also brought us the Cosmic Watch. The Cosmic Watch is a beautiful unique 3D interactive astronomical timepiece. Both of these apps are beautifully designed. They present data from an astronomical perspective and invite interaction. Celestial Dynamics is a Swiss company and their programs reflect the quality you would expect from a Swiss made timepiece. In fact, the company is looking to offer the Cosmic Watch as a real world timepiece to sit on your desk or hang on a wall. Check out this page.
Both apps provide educational information in a beautiful, unique and interesting way.
The company says, “Our mission is to create beautiful and inspiring apps to raise awareness of the magical creations we are living in.”
In today’s world life is all about connectivity. Connected Earth shows us these connections in a beautifully entertaining and educational way. In a way, this app provides a public service since it is free of charge and contains no ads.
