Two Years of Global Cloud Cover Animated
Cloud Globe is a very impressive Google Chrome experiment, that animates over two years of cloud data on top of a globe.
The animated cloud imagery was compiled from hourly snapshots of the cloud layer on Google Maps. It is possible to use the timeline beneath the globe to fast-forward or replay a part of the animation. It is also possible to select 'Storms' to enable the naming of major storms on the globe, 'Vegetation' to view an attractive vegetation layer and 'Currents' to view the major sea currents in the world.
