This was ARC’s first major content production for the OmniGlobe spherical display system, and is available in an interactive format or as a continuously running movie. This sample mollweide animated sequence gives you a sense of what the animation looks like on a flat screen but The Paleo-Animation looks fantastic on the OmniGlobe. Seeing it on a flat screen is one thing but seeing it on a sphere really brings it to life and enhances its educational value. Several museums have purchased the OmniGlobe specifically for the Paleo-Animation.

This fascinating, detailed sequence shows the earth’s surface driven by plate tectonics evolving through the last 600 million years. ARC created the time-lapse images from original paleo-geographic art by geologist/artist Dr. Ronald Blakey at the University of Northern Arizona, with plate positions based primarily on the work of C. R. Scotese, PaleoMap Project. ARC can customize the animation with running year labels.
