We present our approach for the immersive analysis of spatio-
temporal data, using a three-dimensional virtual globe. We display
quantitative data as country-shaped elevated polygons and animate
elevation levels over time to represent the temporal dimension.
This approach allows us to investigate global patterns of behaviour,
like pandemic infection data. By using a virtual reality setting, we
intend to increase our understanding of spatial data and potential
global relationships. Based on the development of our prototype,
we outline research challenges we see emerging in this context.
