Sculpted Pixel Incorporated's Earth. Visualized. presents constantly updating weather and climate data. Earth. Visualized. gives planet enthusiasts a unique perspective on the Spring Equinox by allowing them to see the event as it would appear from the moon. The app, available on Google Play, has been enhanced to provide more ways for viewing Earth in 3D as a Live Wallpaper and as a Daydream.

The 2015 Spring Equinox takes place on March 20 where the sun rises in due east and sets in due west. The event is also called the March or Vernal Equinox.

Earth. Visualized. gives the curious an interactive experience to explore views of our planet that are normally invisible to the eye, yet critical to understanding humanity’s role in the environment.

“It’s incredible to experience Earth’s changes in real-time, with 3D imagery relative to where that individual lives on the planet,” says Mark Manca, Creator and Founder of Sculpted Pixels Incorporated.

The app showcases over twenty interactive 3D visualizations of Earth including land, cloud, water, temperature and anomaly data. The app receives satellite and data from NASA, NOAA and other sources to present views of the planet.

“Understanding the Earth and our place within a larger system helps us feel connected to the planet and our world. This app lets you hold that knowledge in your hand and be inspired by the vast amount of daily satellite information that’s available to see the weather patterns, the climate change, and simply how beautiful this planet looks from space,” Manca continues.
