NASA World Wind is a free, open-source API that provides the tools to create interactive visualizations of Earth in 4D. At Ames Research Center, the NASA WorldWind 2017 Intern team has designed an educational web application that visualizes
the effects of climate change on agriculture using a large collection of global agriculture and climate data and the Web World Wind Source Development Kit (SDK).
on the globe.
This web app is intended for use in classrooms by teachers and students as well as citizens of the world. Children and adults alike will be able to learn about climate issues by visually experiencing the data according to their interests.
Users will learn about the effects of weather over time on agriculture, the impact to national economies, and much more.
You can plot individual graphs of datasets, and hide them.
Graphs resize automatically when the user interface is resized.
'Add Graph' places this graph below existing graphs in the Data Graphs tab. 'Combine Graph' places this graph's points inside of all existing graphs in the Data Graphs tab.
Search for crop Geo-Comparison data and toggle the layers. Use time slider to control the year to be displayed. The legend is based on standard deviations and the z-score. The greener or redder the country color, the higher or lower
the crop production is for that country compared to the average of all of the available countries' production.
Zoom into a country to view the specified amount of production in tons. Right click and hold to drag and tilt the globe.
Find current weather of a city, including temperature, pressure, humidity, sunrise, sunset, and etc.
Change projection type and use the search button to specific cities around the globe. Turn on the music with audio control.
The user interface is draggable, scrollable, and resizable vertically, horizontally, and diagonally.
Please click on a flag to see data specific to a country or territory.

Geo-Comparison Data (Amount of Crops Produced By Country)
Note: The color scheme is based on other countries' data, so there is no numeric data. To clarify, for example, if USA has 5 and is the average, its color would be yellow. If China has 8, its color would be green.
