A 3D Globe to see real time visitors with Node.js and WebGL

This cool real time visitor tracker is using Node.js for live connection and WebGL to render the 3D globe. Few node.js modules needed npm express, npm request and npm is-bot. The 3D globe is using WebGL Earth Open Street Map tiles. For the accurate location of visitor, its using geoplugin.com API to get the coordinates from user IP address.

It need some time to get started but its worth when you see a big and cute colorful globe full with your visitors label. You have to get a node.js hosting, deploy your code, insert invisible tracking image and do some app.js configuration and CSS styling.

For the node.js hosting you can go with Nodejitsu, Heroku or Modulus not bad also.
