Earthdesk not updating

This live projection moves throughout the day as shown below, gathering data from the Internet to render your image. You can really fiddle with how your desktop wallpaper looks and works. As well as this it seems to be optimized only for single core, meaning it takes twice as long as it could.Thankfully it only needs to render every couple of hours. But one utility, Earth Desk, from Xeric Design, takes you beyond what’s right in front of your face, and presents you with the world, on your desktop. The way someone organizes and presents their desktop can say a lot about a person – whether they are the cluttered, messy type, or someone who likes cleanliness and order, whether they are fanciful or serious.It replaces your old and boring desktop with an image of our planet, which constantly updates, to show you the night and day zones, clouds and more. The setup package for Windows is about 25 MB large.You may spend some time downloading the file if your Internet connection is not fast enough, but it will take less than a minute to install the application.

It uses Earth Desk to generate the spherical projections, and Quartz Composer to manage the display.

If you’re staying up too late, you’ll see the sunrise inevitably creep to the West, threatening to catch up with you.

But no matter your task, Earth Desk is rendering real-time imagery in the background, giving you a snapshot of the world, on your Mac.

You can select from a number of display options, including satellite view or political view, equirectangular or globe, and more.

Even if you’re locked in a cubicle in the office, and can’t see a window, you’ll know the sun is going down as darkness covers your city.
