A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to STEM.
Visualising land surface temperature
Highlighting the average temperature of land, during the daytime in November.
Flight paths and great circles
The route is first projected onto a two-dimensional map before animating to the three-dimensional shape of a globe.
A virtual tour of Zürich Airport
Experience the three runways of Zürich Airport in this 3D virtual tour. Featuring terminals, taxiways and more details.
Airports around the world
View the location of more than 7,000 airports spanning the globe.
Flight routes and waypoint references visualised
Aircraft navigate the skies along routes of waypoints and beacons. Waypoints indicate a change in direction, speed, or altitude along the desired path.
Innsbruck airport approach
The runway at Innsbruck is at an elevation of 581 metres and the final approach must be made through a narrow valley with terrain on either side.
Airspace above the United Kingdom
Across the world airspace is divided into three dimensional blocks. This view shows airspace blocks over an area of the United Kingdom.
Airflow around an aircraft wingtip
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of airflow at an aircraft's wingtip. Vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
Pressure around an aircraft wing
CFD visualisation to show the pressure distribution around an aircraft wing. The curved shape creates lift by forcing air to move faster over the top of a wing.
Cross section of pressure around a wing
Rendering the volume of air that is affected by an aerofoil surface. Low pressure areas, responsible for creating lift, are shown in blue.
Airflow around an aircraft wing
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of an aircraft wing, with a 3 degree angle of attack. Including a turntable showing a 360° look at airflow around a wing.
Visualising the Earth's vegetation index
See how and where green leaf vegetation grows on planet Earth.
