Displays latest satellite images of North and South America.

Overview

ECSatellite is a widget which displays an animation of the latest satellite images of North and South america, including the North Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Separately, all radar coverage for Canada can also be viewed as an animation, including multi-province zones such as the Pacific or Maritimes. 6-hour models for the upper-atmosphere air circulation are also made available.

Users can choose how fast the images rotate, how many images an animation includes, and which area will be displayed.

The size of the displayed image is also adjustable.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What's new in ECSatellite

Version 2.6:
  • Environment Canada changed the location (and the quality) of the images. The new images are dreadfully low contrast, so we switched back to the old ones.

Finally! A weather widget that shows Canada clearly, with multiple choices for regions. Thanks hugely.

Wish this was an app instead of a widget. Or just the option. I can try to convert it over myself, but I'd rather not deal with the hassle.

Try using Amnesty or Amnesty singles to use widget as desktop App!

Thank you for the suggestion. I have Amnesty, but I've found it to be hit or miss in the past. Some work, some don't. Like many others, I just generally avoid widgets and skip the hassle altogether.

Use Amnesty singles for one widget and make sure when you drop this widget in Amnesty singles select without dependency so Amnesty will make Application out of widget. I tried and works like charm. Hope this helps!!
