EarthBrowser depicts the latest weather, earthquake, volcanoes and clouds on a very intuitive and enjoyable, three-dimensional model of the Earth.
This isn't just a static image; you can grab the Earth and rotate it in any direction you wish.
You can also zoom in and out to get a detailed image or a far off view from space. The clouds are updated from satellite images on an hourly basis, and the shadow travels across the globe all day long (taking the seasons into account).
Earthbrowser default setting is to automatically download a fresh image. If you are on a fixed tariff Internet usage you might set the default to manual download.
For more detailed information, including on updates, please read the documentation or visit the home page.
