GeoDome Globes and Magic Planet Upgrades

In addition to the full range of GeoDome Globes, we offer upgrades for existing Magic Planet® globe display systems. Our globes combine OmniFocus projection technology and Elumenati support driven by our WorldViewer™ software. Since 2012, we’ve delivered globes and projection systems to dozens of satisfied clients. GeoDome Globes range from 2’ to 6’ in diameter, with resolution up to 5.5 million pixels and brightness over 20,000 lumens.

“Our new Elumenati projection system has made our 6′ Magic Planet come to life. The brightness and quality of the projected image make a major difference in the impact the globe makes on viewers. We are extremely happy and look forward to adding more content for our guests to explore,” said Chuck Kopczak, Curator of Ecology at the California Science Center.

For museums and science centers, globe display systems include both WorldViewer and Global Imagination®’s StoryTeller™ software. Globe presentations support a huge library of content.  Supported content for globes using WorldViewer includes:

  • NOAA’s Science on a Sphere library of movies and datasets, including the EarthNow Climate Digest
  • NASA Earth Observations and Scientific Visualization Studio animations
  • 360° and panoramic images and video – sources include Google Street View, World Heritage Tour, 360Cities, 360heros, and many more
  • Media created for Oculus Rift and other head-mounted VR displays
  • Live streaming content from YouTube and Vimeo (both spherical and standard aspect ratio)
  • Web pages – supported via WorldViewer’s internal HTML engine
  • External applications – launching, navigation, and viewing supported by third-party Spout library

Our globes also include options for Eyes on the Earth and Eyes on the Solar System, offered through our collaboration with NASA JPL, as well as custom interactive content enabled for the globe with Omnity.
