I would like to make an interactive sphere that has "pixels" as smallest divisible map units. By "pixels" I mean like the provinces of Rome Total War or like the hexes in Civ games. But not so important and detailed. They would just contain absolute basic information about the area they cover (coordinates; terrain; population; adjecensies; infrastructure level; etc)
How would I go about generating a sphere which is covered by those "pixels"? Is such a thing even possible?
