The Challenge | Polar Opposites

Design a data analysis and/or visualization tool to show the spatial and temporal changes in Arctic and Antarctic ice to a general audience.

Cryosphere Visualizer

Using 3D tech to visualize climate change better!

  • This app produces a voxelized image of the surface of a given map.
  • When used with multiple maps over time, it can show the changes in the surface, and by extension, the loss of ice mass due to climate change.
  • This software is primarily a blender plugin, with data pulls from real NASA data sources.
  • To run, save everything to a localized folder, and use blender's python console to navigate and execute visualizer.py

all source code can be found here.
