About this application

We wrote the original version of Worldmap for Sysquake to experiment with different map projections. Vector maps are loaded from Shapefiles; data themselves come from Natural Earth @ naturalearthdata.com. We saved the data to an SQD file (Sysquake data file which retains the state of an interactive Sysquake application) to avoid the dependency on a separate file. Then we converted it to JavaScript with our tools to embed it in this HTML page.

Worldmap, like other Web interactive applications built with Sysquake, shares the JavaScript technology Calerga has developed for Sysquake Mobile.
