Earth Viewer

Earth Viewer


Application renders the animated 3D planet Earth with animated/realtime public satellite data for past 24h.

EUMETSAT imagery included:
METEOSAT 0 degree:
- Airmass realtime imagery (generated every 1h)
- Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate (rain rate) (generated every 15min)
- IR 10.8 (generated every 1h)
METEOSAT IODC degree:
- Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate (rain rate) (generated every 30min)

NASA GOES imagery included:
- Goes East Infrared (generated every 3h)
- Goes West Infrared (generated every 3h)

MTSAT imagery included:
- Infrared (generated every 1h)

SSEC imagery included:
- Infrared low res composite (generated every 3h)
- Water vapor low res composite (generated every 3h)

Application includes:
- Live weather / Animated satellite data
- Interpolation between satellite images
- Satellite imagery selection from menu
- Live Sun light
- Bump mapping
- Data cache for offline use
- No Ads

*Internet access - Application requires this permission to download the data from the following sites:
EUMETSAT (http://oiswww.eumetsat.org/IPPS/html/MSG/)
NASA GOES (http://goes.gsfc.nasa.gov/goeseast/fulldisk/)
MTSAT (http://www.jma.go.jp/en/gms/)
SSEC University of Wisconsin-Madison (http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/data/comp/)
Xplanet cloudmap (http://xplanet.sourceforge.net)
Data are internally cached and only delta is downloaded. The data are first tried to download using Coral Distribution Network.

For Xplanet cloudmap many thanks to Hari Nair author of Xplanet.

*On some devices application will not launch and only black screen is seen. This is caused in most cases by low graphical card capabilities or low amount of memory of the target device. Application use OpenGL ES 2.0 and extensive pixel shader with multitexturing.

*Application is distributed as local image viewer which is accessing public available content from internet on behalf of user. There is no guarantee for the availability of the downloaded data and the application also works without internet connectivity.

Program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY.
