GIG Discrete Global Grid System

This demo presents properties of Global Indexing Grid (GIG) - a systematic subdivision of sphere based on Cartesian and spherical coordinates. The subdivision's granularity is given by a single parameter - the division coefficient.

Notable Features:

Global subdivision without intermediate mapping to a planar domain:

Suitable for indexing and proximity queries:

Generate random points and line elements:

Arbitrary level of subdivision:
