Hey everyone, in preparation for my talk at KPMG on Wednesday I've created a 3D globe showing Bitcoin nodes.

Link:

To view, you need a WebGL compatible browser. That is Firefox 4 or Chrome 9+ I think. Also your drivers etc all have to be in order. So for a lot of you this won't work. For the rest:

LAUNCH 3D GLOBE


Credits:



Screenshot (click to enlarge):





The globe shows the Bitcoin nodes by city. The height and color of the bars denotes the number of nodes from that city.

Source code (the part that I wrote) will be posted shortly.

Enjoy.  Smiley

The correct link is: http://www.weusecoins.com/globe-bitcoin/
And you can spin it manually by clicking and dragging.

Not via scroll wheel.

Up and Down arrows work, but it's basic. No detail enhancement.

*Edit* Put the wrong keys lol

Doesn't work for me in Chrome 11. (Globe doesn't show up at all).

This is awesome!
Is there a way to make it spin slowly and continuously for background ambience?

Shows for me on Chrome 11.0.696.68
Also, the scroll wheel does zoom in Chrome... doesn't seem to work in Firefox 4, though it could be due to an addon.

That's exactly the version of Chrome I have.

Most of the page loads, just not the globe... how long should it take?

Loads near instantly for me.

Only loads in FF4 and Chrome 11.
IE9 and Opera 11.11 aren't displaying it for me. Not sure how much HTML5 support they have though :-/

I'm just a FF whore (mainly due to the addons I've become accustom to.)

Loads almost instantly for me.  Chrome 11.0.696.68, Ubuntu 11.04.  Scroll wheels work.  Really cool project.

Okay, don't know then... I left the page open for 15 minutes and it's a really nice looking page, but no globe Smiley

Chrome 11.0.696.68, Windows Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.101209-1647 : Service Pack 3)

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot I didn't have Direct X installed since I re-installed Windows recently... downloading it now Smiley

Ah yea zooming works, but not as smooth and detailed as http://maps.google.com/maps?q=https://smsz.net/btcStats/bitcoin.kml
do both display the same data basically?

Link fixed!

Yep. I just made this as a flashier version that I can show after my talk as a little gimmick.

OMG it's hypnotizing... I've been staring at it for 20 mins. 

Does anyone know - when transactions occur, is the node from which they originate known? Basically, would there be a way to visualize when a coin is "sent" from one location on the globe to another?

This Webgl globe has realtime data, so at least that part of it is possible:

http://mozillademos.org/demos/globetweeter/demo.html

As for getting the location of senders/receivers, Dan Kaminsky created a tool, blitcoin, that can find the IP address of transaction senders/recipients, but this is a privacy concern and solutions are being sought to prevent this from being possible.
