TerraTime Map

Phone Screen Shot: Map

Watch the passage of time: a photo-realistic, global, real-time map of daylight and darkness, clouds and seasons. It's never the same view twice as the day/night line changes position from hour to hour, and changes shape from month to month. The interactive map can be accessed from the main TerraTime application menu; or, like the globe, it can be used as a live wallpaper on the home screen of any Android device (click if you need help with this).

The map is built up from the following layers, all of which are created from either current satellite imagery or astronomically-accurate computer simulations. Except for the base layer, you have the option of hiding or showing any that you choose:

The TerraTime Map is based on the same technology as underpins the popular DaylightMap website, which is also available as an iGoogle gadget and theme.
