The Climate Change Explorer lets you compare aggregated temperature values over two different periods of time. The database comes from the Berkeley Earth Organization and encompasses more than 8 million individual measurements.

WebGPUs Compute Shader are used to accumulate and rasterize this data in realtime. Additionally a classical rendering pipeline is used to draw the aggregated bins and the world map.

The tool was written by Gerald Kimmersdorfer and Dominik Wolf for the course Real-Time Visualization in the winter semester 2022.
