A small, configurable javascript library that covers a sphere with hexagonal tiles. The technical term for this structure is a geodesic polyhedron, with triangles grouped into hexagons (and a few of pentagons). This page uses WebGL and Three.js to display the hexasphere, but the library itself does not have any external dependencies.

Used to create the Encom Globe. Visit the Github Repo for methodology and programmatic usage information.

You may also generate and download a hexasphere as either a json file or a wavefront (.obj) model below. Subdivisions determines the number of tiles in the hexasphere. Tile size allows you to add a buffer between the tiles.
