Building the Earth with WebGL and JavaScript

I just browsed through this article, but from what I noticed it seems really cool to create the planet like this with only HTML, CSS and JavaScript! Really neat.
I thought of what would I use something like this for and my mind set off…

Since I am interested in sustainable communities across the globe I would perhaps map various communities onto a globe creating hundreds of dots to which a user could click each and every dot to learn more about the community in the specific location. It would be a worldwide sustainable community gathering giving the chance for anyone interested learn about any community across the globe. Hundreds of dots would slowly grow into thousands of dots. Creating a broader sustainable world for all of us to learn more about and to take part in.

Have a great day! Thank you for the inspiration!
