worldwind-react-globe

A 3D globe for React featuring maps, imagery and terrain plus 2D map projections using the Web WorldWind virtual globe SDK from NASA and ESA.

Demo

NPM JavaScript Style Guide

Install

npm install --save worldwind-react-globe

Usage

Example #1: Simple

Create a Globe using the defaults.

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import Globe from 'worldwind-react-globe'

class App extends Component {
  render () {
    return (
      <div>
        <Globe />
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Example #2: Normal

Creates a Globe that fills the page.

  • Adds layers to the Globe using layer type keys defined in Globe.layerTypes
  • Sets the startup latitude and longitude coordinates (in decimal degrees)and the eye/camera altitude (in meters)
App.js
import React, { Component } from 'react'
import Globe from 'worldwind-react-globe'
import './App.css'

export default class App extends Component {
  render() {

    const layers = [
      'eox-sentinal2-labels',
      'coordinates',
      'view-controls',
      'stars',
      'atmosphere-day-night'
    ];

    return (
      <div className='fullscreen'>
        <Globe 
          ref={this.globeRef}
          layers={layers}
          latitude={34.2}
          longitude={-119.2}
          altitude={10e6} 
        />
      </div>
    )
  }
}
App.css
.fullscreen {
    width: 100vw;
    height: 100vh;
    overflow: hidden;
}

Example #3: More Complex

Creates a Globe that fills the page.

  • Adds layers to the Globe using layer type keys defined in Globe.layerTypes
  • Sets and changes the globe's latitude and longitude coordinates and the eye/camera altitude via the component's state.
  • Uses a ref object to get a references to the Globe
App.js
import React, { Component } from 'react'
import Globe from 'worldwind-react-globe'
import './App.css'

export default class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = {
      lat: 34.2,
      lon: -119.2,
      alt: 10e6
    }
    this.globeRef = React.createRef();
  }

  render() {
    const layers = [
      'eox-sentinal2-labels',
      'coordinates',
      'view-controls',
      'stars',
      'atmosphere-day-night'
    ];
    return (
      <div className='fullscreen'>
        <Globe 
          layers={layers}
          latitude={this.state.lat}
          longitude={this.state.lon}
          altitude={this.state.alt} 
        />
      </div>
    )
  }
}
App.css
.fullscreen {
    width: 100vw;
    height: 100vh;
    overflow: hidden;
}
