An interactive and customizable 3D globe with data bars & tooltips

Globe Data Bars is a free visualization that lets you create an interactive globe of data. Supply the visual with Latitude/Longitude coordinates, as well as a data value and name for that location, and you will quickly have a global view of your data.

By default, up to the top 10 values you input will have a name and value turned into a floating tool-tip above the corresponding data bar.

For even more customization, give the visual your choice of a background color, global lighting, number of visible tool tips, and the overall data bar color. The visual is powered by WebGL.
