Science Museum Oklahoma is the newest member of the GeoDome network, adding a 1m GeoDome Globe to their interactive exhibits. The system features dual blended OmniFocus 30510 projectors, providing 5.1Mpix resolution at 10,000 lumens. Powered by our Elumenati IG and WorldViewer, the globe showcases plate tectonics with a customized localization showing the location of the museum from 600 MYA (million years ago) to today, with a touchscreen for user-driven interactive experiences.
The globe features the Global Paleogeography and Tectonics in Deep Time series, completed in 2016 by Deep Time Maps™. This historical visualization of plate-tectonic Earth history spans 600 MYA through today. It starts at the end of the Proterozoic Eon, 600 MYA and moves into the Phanerozoic Eon. The last 600 million years reflect one and a half continental supercycles – the break-up of Rodinia, formation of Pangea, break-up of Pangea and initiation of new supercontinent in the Northern Hemisphere, so far composed of Europe, Asia, and North America.
In addition to their new GeoDome Globe, the museum has also purchased a Cobra Panorama, which will go live in the coming year. We are excited to continue working with the museum team as they expand their interactive Earth and space science storytelling with dynamic immersive exhibits.
