Trygve Inda has released an update for EarthDesk, bringing it to version 2.5. EarthDesk is a rotating desktop map that ships with several features including city light display at night and an expandable atlas. The update features map enhancements and display mods. According to Trygve Inda:
Trygve H. Inda, developer of the premier world time and mapping tool, Time Palette, announces the immediate availability of EarthDesk 2.5, an update to the wildly popular dynamic desktop map application.
EarthDesk replaces your static desktop picture with an animated, real-time rendered image of the Earth, continuously updating in the background while you work. The software supports eleven different map projections, political and satellite views, and renders accurate sun, moon and city lighting.
EarthDesk 2.5 adds full map centering and zoom support for all map projections (in previous versions, many projections were locked to the equator). Additionally, when running on a system with multiple displays, the map update frequency may now be specified for each display individually.
You can find more information about the EarthDesk update the Time Palette Web site. The EarthDesk 2.5 update is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$19.95.
