Spherical Geometry Explorer


This is a simple and powerful tool for exploring some basic ideas of spherical geometry.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a good interactive spherical geometry applet is worth a thousand well-drawn diagrams!

    Your goo.gl link brings me back to this page. By any chance did you mean http://merganser.math.gvsu.edu/easel/ from my colleagues David and Will?

    Thanks for the proof-reading, John! This is what I linked to:

    But I’m definitely going to look into the spherical drawing program you’ve shared!
