The map is fully customisable. Users can choose between various map projections, whether to use a satellite image or political map, and whether to show night time and moonlight. The map can be centered and zoomed up to 400% anywhere on Earth. In addition to centering on a fixed point, EarthDesk can centre on the current position of the Moon or Sun. EarthDesk supports multiple monitors.
I have turned on disk cache,my db3 file is about 1GB and the map operation is very slow. There is a delay of 3 to 4 seconds when dragging the map. I found that the redraw time was about 0.016 seconds when the map window was small, but 0.47 seconds when it was displayed in full screen, and the operation was significantly delayed.Has anyone had a similar problem
