The literature on Galactic high-velocity clouds has good x and y positional plots but there seem to be no 3-D maps. Does anyone know of such a rendering? A video simulation of the motions of 200 or so most massive clouds over the last 100 - 200 myr would make a fascinating view.

Never mind, found one in Putman et al 2012 Gaseous Galaxy Halos (http://arxiv.org/pdf/1207.4837v1.pdf?), Fig 3 (interactive PDF). Hope other readers enjoy, too. =Dana in SA
