A fast method of producing an arbitrary number of equally distributed points around a sphere. This is accomplished by drawing a fibonacci spiral (similar to sunflower seed pattern) that maintains constant surface area. n = number of points phi = (sqrt(5)+1)/2 - 1 ga = PHI * TWO_PI for each point i (1..n) longitude = ga*i latitude = asin(-1 + 2*i/n) As written, the sketch constantly adds new points to the sphere. Click to toggle this feature, so you can examine the point distribution.
