    Abstract

    Globe4D is an interactive four-dimensional globe. It is a projection of the Earth’s surface on a physical sphere. The sphere can be freely rotated along all axes, viewed from any angle and enables the user to control time as its fourth dimension. An application was created that shows the historical movement of the continents, known as continental drift. Besides the Earth, any planet or spherical object can be projected. This paper describes the background, aims, results and progress of this student project.
