I made my first small WebGL app that fetches a star catalog and displays stars within 25 parsec (80 lightyear) using WebGL+Three.JS. I also created a second view that will only show named star and will try to fetch their Wikipedia page on mouse over.
I didn’t trim the catalog so be prepared to wait for 8mb of text to load 🙂.
Try it out:
This demo is missing a lot of optimization so it shouldn’t be used for benchmarking.
I also unfortunately didn’t get around to calculating and displaying the relative size of each star.
