GDELT on a Sphere

Back in May we unveiled GDELT on the NOAA Science on a Sphere network, allowing you to visit one of the more than 100 NOAA SOS spheres around the globe and see global conflict on an actual 6-foot-diameter globe floating in space right in front of you.  This week we traveled to NOAA's headquarters here in Silver Spring, Maryland to see the SOS sphere in action displaying GDELT.  The results are nothing short of stunning, as you can see from the images below.
