August 13, 2014



Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

The just-launched Earth. Visualized. 3D interactive app from Sculpted Pixels Incorporated will be showcased at the computer graphic community's premier event, SIGGRAPH 2014 during Appy Hour on August 13th.

App Creator Mark Manca was chosen among independent developers transforming how users interact with and experience visual images across mobile phone and tablet devices. Appy Hour will be showcasing innovation across eleven named small teams who represent the next generation of mobile media.

Earth. Visualized. presents constantly updating weather and climate data. The app, launched earlier this week on Google Play, gives the curious an interactive experience to explore views that are normally invisible to the eye, yet critical to understanding humanity's role in the environment.

The app delivers over twenty interactive 3D visualizations of Earth including land, cloud, water, temperature and anomaly data. The app receives satellite and data from NASA, NOAA and other sources to present views of the world.

"The fundamental reason for Earth. Visualized. is to educate people about their world. It does this by leveraging 3D computer graphics techniques on a mobile device. I'm excited to show Earth. Visualized. with the SIGGRAPH community at Appy Hour so that other computer graphics professionals can see how the app works," says Manca.

This year, SIGGRAPH 2014 brings thousands of computer graphics and interactive technology professionals to Vancouver Canada for the industry's most respected technical and creative programs on research, science, art, animation, music, gaming, interactivity, education, and the web at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
