Earth's Underwater Internet Cables Visualized

A DataViz Tyler Morgan-Wall has created a visualization of the Earth's submarine fiber optic cable network.

DataViz and the developer of rayshader, rayrender, and the rayverse Tyler Morgan-Wall has created a fantastic visualization of the Earth's underwater fiber optic cable network. According to the author, this project was made using RStats and rayrender – an open-source R package for raytracing scenes created in R. rayrender builds scenes using a pipeable iterative interface and supports diffuse, metallic, dielectric (glass), light-emitting materials, as well as procedural and user-specified image textures and HDR environment lighting. rayrender includes multicore support (with progress bars) via RcppThread, random number generation via the PCG RNG, and .obj file support via TinyObjLoader.
