Features and Highlights
EarthDesk for macOS has 12 projections to choose from including Mercator, Azimuthal, and Equirectangular, and a Globe with an optional starfield background.
Center on latitude/longitude, a point relative to the sun or moon, or any of 10,000 locations. A data subscription gives you even more centering options.
Multi-color labels can be used to group cities by category and pinpoint them on the app's maps. Labels are defined per-screen for maximum versatility.
Earth Desk for Mac operates in the background, using minimal resources. Apart from the beautiful picture on your desktop, you won't even notice it is running.
One, two, three or more screens can be used simultaneously. Display a different map on each one, or span a single map across all your screens.

Watch earthquakes happen all over the world. Choose the minimum magnitude to display, select the number of days they remain, and 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.
A data subscription provides you with high-resolution cloud images at a detail level of 32 megapixels. High-resolution clouds update every three hours.
