Cloud Data


The cloud data of EarthView is generated from high resolution satellite images of the five major geostationary weather satellites. The five single images are carefully combined to a global composite, which is then made available for download from our servers. This produces very realistic results, which even make it possible to see local weather situations. The download of the cloud data is currently available in three different resolutions:

  • Low: 2 megapixels, resolution 2048 x 1024 pixels, download size approx. 500 KB
  • Medium: 8 megapixels, resolution 4096 x 2048 pixels, download size approx. 1,5 MB
  • Large: 32 megapixels, resolution 8192 x 4096 pixels, download size approx. 3,5 MB

The data is updated up to 8 times a day (every 3 hours). Here are examples of the different resolutions:


Low resolution

Medium resolution

High resolution


Free Cloud Data Download

The demo version of EarthView is limited to the demo clouds that come with EarthView. If you purchase a license of EarthView (the full version), you can download current cloud data free of charge. The free download is limited to low resolution and the data is only updated once a day. If you'd like to have several updates per day and higher resolution of the cloud data, please purchase a cloud data download license.

Cloud Data Download

Due to the high data transfer costs and other resources needed, a small download fee is required for downloading the high resolution cloud data. We are keeping this as inexpensive as possible so that just our expenses (bandwidth, server operation and maintenance, quality surveillance, etc.) will be covered. When you order a download license, you'll get a user name and password for the cloud data download which you can enter in the respective fields in the options of EarthView. You'll then be able to also select the medium and high resolution download and the download interval (minimum 3 hours). Please visit the Purchase page for details.

TIP

The cloud data download is valid for EarthView and EarthTime, so if you own both, you can use one download license for both programs!

IMPORTANT

1) Downloading cloud data from the internet is only possible with the full version of EarthView. The demo is restricted to the random clouds mode.

2) We can not guarantee that the online data for the clouds will always be available and current! The cloud data is provided by third party institutions and we have no influence on their course of action. We will do everything possible to insure up-to-date cloud data, but there can be delays or server downtimes that can cause the cloud data not to be current for some time. Such problems are very rare and they are usually fixed within a few hours.

3) The cloud information is not available at the same level of detail as some of our ultra high resolution maps (this would produce extremely long download times and high costs). So the cloud display is only an approximation, nevertheless very realistic.

4) Administrative information about the cloud data download license can be found in the Cloud Data Download Order Conditions. Please make sure to read this text carefully!
