[prMac.com] Incline Village, Nevada - Xeric Design, Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of EarthDesk 4.6, its award-winning, real-time dynamic desktop map, for Macintosh OS X. EarthDesk 4.6 increases the natural map detail by 25% thus providing crisper images at high zoom-levels.
EarthDesk replaces your static desktop with an image of the Earth showing current sun, moon and city illumination, as well as real-time global cloud coverage, allowing you to track hurricanes and other weather systems on your Macintosh or Windows desktop.
The software operates silently in the background, keeping your desktop updated while you work. Unlike a screen saver, which only appears when your system is idle, EarthDesk's dynamic desktop is continuously displayed as your desktop background (and optionally as a screen saver).
EarthDesk is the only application of its kind to support accurate moonlight, multiple monitors and eleven different map projections, as well as political, enhanced satellite and natural views.
Pricing and Availability:
EarthDesk requires Mac OS X 10.4 or newer. Single user copies may be purchased online for $24.95 (USD). Upgrades from version 2.x or 3.x are available for $11.95 (USD).
