            Where to upload data in Webgl -globe?
            Asked 2019-May-06 at 20:59

            I've just downloaded the whole folder from this link:


            I would like to do the same data visualization, but if I open the file index.html, inside the globe directory, but the globe doesn't appear, and I don't know the problem.

            Another doubt is: if I substitute the json file with my data (always in json format) it should work?

            How can I solve these problems? Thanks in advance

            Ah, I see what your problem is- you'll need this content to be served up by a simple server of your choice. (The simplest of which is probably this Node.js package: http-server - you'll need git and Node.js installed)

            I've just got your demo working for you, with the following steps:

            1. Get a simple node server. npm install http-server -g (you need it global installed)
            2. Get the demo files: git clone https://github.com/dataarts/webgl-globe.git and cd webgl-globe.
            3. Start the web server, from the current directory just run http-server .
            4. Then in your browser navigate to http://localhost:8080/globe - and boom it'll be working perfectly.

            And in answer to your second question, as long as your data is in the following format, (the same as this example data) it should work fine when you plug your json in:

            How to get lat long values of point at center of screen in WebGL Globe?
            Asked 2018-Jan-14 at 16:15

            Google's WebGL Globe allow placing markes at a specific lat long. But how can we get the lat long value of point currently at front or at center of screen. May be using camera position or rotation value.

            We can use below code to find position on globe from lat long values:

            As far as I can see there’s no direct way to get it. I see two options:

            • you can either modify globe.js to “export” the rotation object: add the following at the end of globe.js, just after this.scene = scene;:
