Highlights and details
Our revamped cloud imagery showcasing the vibrant color changes of the seasons
Among the brilliant imagery of the Geo-Cosmos, the intricate clouds are a particular standout. The cloud imagery has also been upgraded to now incorporate photo data supplied daily by weather satellites, creating an incredibly detailed experience of the Earth’s changing appearance. Furthermore, dividing the base map background Earth image into multiple sections enables rich expressions of seasonal color changes, including polar ice and vegetation.
"Up Close with New Geo-Cosmos!"
For this maintenance, the 6-meter-diameter Geo-Cosmos was lowered from a height of about 12 meters to the ground, and the replacement of 10,362 panels and wiring work were all done by hand. This maintenance took about a total of six months. Plus, the usually unseen images of the inside of the Geo-Cosmos are included.
