Earth's Submarine Fiber Optic Cable Network by Institute for Defense Analyses

I created this 3D visualization entirely in R, using the rayrender package (a software package that I also wrote and have released to the community). I also used the geojsonsf R package to convert the data from the provided GeoJSON format to be processed by the sf package and imported into the rayrender scene. I shared the code used to generate the visualization with the community (links below). My main goal with all my visualizations is to provide inspiration for how people can visualize data in 3D, de-stigmatize and promote good 3D data visualizations, and build and share code/tools to facilitate that process.
