EarthDesk TV is a map-lover's dream and a stunning display for your Apple TV. The app converts your Apple TV into a beautifully crisp, near real-time, dynamic image of our planet, continuously updating throughout the day. The application uses current satellite weather data to display global cloud coverage with transparency and moonlight reflection, as well as accurate sun, moon, and city lighting. Configure the map, sit back, and enjoy the view!

EarthDesk includes four beautiful, high-resolution maps and four map projections, including a brilliant globe.

Without a data subscription, EarthDesk's cloud data updates every six hours at a detail level of 2 megapixels. An optional data subscription is available for 1, 3, 6 and 12-month periods. Data subscriptions include more frequent high-resolution cloud data at 16 times more detail than free cloud images, as well as near real-time earthquakes, tropical storms, and International Space Station tracking.

Adding a Standard Data Subscription gives you high-resolution clouds updated every three hours and earthquakes updated every 15 minutes, as well as tropical storms and the position and track of the International Space Station. Adding a Premium Data Subscription gives you high-resolution clouds updated every hour and earthquakes updated every minute, as well as tropical storms and the position and track of the International Space Station.

- High-resolution clouds are precisely geo-located and parallax-corrected, with data from up to 23 satellites, including polar regions, at a detail of 32 megapixels.

- Choose the minimum earthquake magnitude to display, the number of days to be displayed, and whether to fade out older quakes.

- Track major tropical storms, cyclones, typhoons, and hurricanes. Choose how to label the storm and whether to display the Safir-Simpson category.

- Follow the International Space Station, including its recent and future track.

EarthDesk TV is designed to match as closely as possible the features and functionality of our EarthDesk desktop software for Mac and Windows. Differences are due to the varying capabilities of each platform.  EarthDesk's wide variety of map projections and graphic styles gives you complete control over the maps on your TV and make a wonderful showpiece for your home or office.
