Track Santa in 3D with Cesium
On December 24, 2012, NORAD is using Cesium and Bing Maps to show Santa's route (tech info for geeks). The tracker works on all browsers including Internet Explorer. The 3D experience requires a web browser that supports WebGL, such as Chrome or Firefox.
To see if your browser is supported, open the Cesium Viewer. If you see a 3D globe, your browser will be able to track Santa in 3D on December 24 by visiting the Track Santa page on www.noradsanta.org.
If 3D does not work well on your system, update your video card drivers. First, determine the manufacturer of your video card. In Microsoft Windows, go to the Start menu and type Device Manager, and click on Device Manager when it appears above. Then find Display adapters in the tree, and expand it to see the manufacturer's name. It will most likely be NVIDIA, AMD/ATI, or Intel.
Download and install the driver from your manufacturer:Track Santa page on www.noradsanta.org to track Santa in 3D.
