Where On The Web is aliiiiive!
I built it, and it appears to work averagely well. You can see the code in the gist on github and soon there will be a mini-video online showing you how it all works. In the meanwhile, just enjoy the pretty colours :D
I’ve uploaded a snapshot1 of the whole window for you to ogle at too.
If you want to play with the code, get ruby installed and then just do:
gem install ruby-processing
or follow the advice here.
Then download the code from the gist, find an equirectangular map of the earth, call it
map.jpg and then run:
rp5 run whereOnTheWeb.rb
(There are more details in the gist) - Enjoy!
