ActiveEarth is a world time clock with a gorgeous day/night merge of NASA's Visible Earth satellite images in flat maps or a globe, with a row of user-definable clocks along the bottom. These clocks are beautiful, scalable, ticking, analog or digital clocks that come in several styles with many custom settings. Each clock is set to a city of your choice. The program has accurate time zone data for more than 500, major world cities and you can add your own.
ActiveEarth provides up-to-date, global weather conditions and forecasts through AccuWeather®. Current conditions can be displayed on clock faces, city labels, and more, for an at-a-glance view of global weather. Further, any clock can be floated on the desktop, and some clocks even have photo slide show abilities, so you can have a single, desktop gadget that elegantly provides photos, time, and weather!
ActiveEarth is an indespensable time utility. A graphical time difference between two or more cities quickly answers the questions, "Is this a good time to call the other side of the planet?" or "What's the best time to have a conference call with our international sales offices?" Along with the dynamic day/night view of the earth, ActiveEarth calculates astronomical data; sunrise, sunset, moon rise and set, moon phase, etc. All are beautifully, graphically displayed. You can even set the program to display data for a specific time.
You can track important future events with countdown clocks! ActiveEarth allows you to countdown to future astronomical events and to specify your own custom events. The program can play an alarm with sounds, MP3, or even video clips to help you remember and celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
Finally, ActiveEarth comes with a screen saver that ties into the main program. Your favorite clocks or countdown events can be displayed with your favorite map view while your PC is idle AND the dynamically changing ActiveEarth map can be set as your desktop backgro
