My first Windows 7 gadget

I have just finished developing my first Windows 7 gadget — Windows 7 Satellite Imagery gadget. It is a gadget that is capable of displaying the latest satellite images from all continents.

You can download it from: (Windows Live Gallery — primary site)

If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact me either by commenting on this post, sending me a message on twitter, or checking out the projects page (coming soon).


How often are the images updated?
Every hour for UK and Europe. All other images are updated every 6 hours.
UK and European images have a processing delay of 20 minutes. All other images have a processing time of 90 minutes.

Where do you get the images from?
The MET office.
