Center of population mapped to a globe. Click and drag to rotate. Population map image created for Wikipedia by Brhaspati then stolen by Ben Fry and mixed with an adaptation of the Textured Sphere example included with the Processing software, which was created by Mike 'Flux' Chang and cleaned up by Aaron Koblin. Originally based on code by Toxi. A 3D textured sphere with simple rotation control. Note: Controls will be inverted when sphere is upside down. Use an "arc ball" to deal with this appropriately.

Source code: TexturedSphere2. Built with Processing.
