This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile380/Global-cloud-map.htm>Global cloud map</a></b><br><br>Global cloud map.<br />
<br />
editors note - I think this is in real close to real time. This one is well worth downloading and keeping, good job Stadsman!<br />
<br />
editors note 2 - Stadsman even put the default view to be the west coast of Africa. Rather timely with the extraordinary amount of hurricane activity so far in 2005. You can see Emily, and two tropical depressions right now (07.14.05) Now for a real treat, change the opacity of the overlay to 100% and look at the really big storm over Africa - that might be next week's hurricane!<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/540707Clouds.jpg>

I attached an updated version blue color, instead of pure black and white, which in my opinion looks much better

This is the first "refreshable" thing I have downloaded and it is pretty cool... Any others you know??

Great "Loading Image" by the way... Takes a long time though...

Edit: Still waiting... I assume, it won't work...

The picture at the default-URL: http://xplanet.dyndns.org/clouds/clouds_2048.jpg

seems to be gone...

But if you replace it in the properities with this one:

http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~jml/clouds_2048.jpg

it should work. It seems to be quite near to real-time. It should be updated every 3 hours, if I understood things right.

Maybe this Link is interesting, too:

http://xplanet.sourceforge.net/clouds.php

Hope, I could help...

I was dissapointed and frustrated when this stopped working. Your 'fix' works a treat!

Thank you :cool:

The overlay needs to be refitted (it can be several 10's of miles apart in some locations). Other then that it's a very good idea.

How do I get into the properties in order to install the 'fix'? My Earth turns white after the upgrade, but there's a way of fixing that- but I don't know how to use the URL. Just recently discovered Google Earth... Rookie...

...it does not work. I downloaded the orginal in the first post, and it gave a photo in which there wasn't a cloud within a thousand miles of me, literally. I look out the window and it's overcast. I download the version in the next post and I get nothing. I re-download the original and replace the URL as stated later in the thread, but that won't work, either.

This would be pretty cool.
