Description:
This category is for Geodesic Domes. Geodesic Domes are almost spherical structures contructed with the use of triangular elements.
Expanded Description:
First off, there is no more widely known example of a geodesic dome than "Spaceship Earth".

(Although, technically it's a geodesic sphere).

The design of the geodesic dome is not as simple as it may appear, because the individual links (i.e., the "edges" of the triangular faces) must have slightly different lengths in order to give curvature to the overall surface. Typically the design of a geodesic dome begins by selecting one of the Platonic solids, such as an icosahedron inscribed in a sphere, conceptually filling up each triangular face with a set of smaller triangles, and then projecting each face onto the interior surface of the sphere.

You got all that?

Instructions for Posting a Geodesic Domes Waymark:
The big difference between the old locationless cache and this category, is a qualifying waymark doesn't have to be a home. It can be a place of business, theater, museum, stadium, or even a church. As long as it's a Geodesic Dome, we're good.
Find a Geodesic Dome and get it's coordinates. Grab some shots and you're good. Please respect private property and avoid any illegal parking. We can't afford to reimburse you.

Title of waymark - Name of building - City, State/Country
