What's the weather map that is taken from the space and shows the clouds called?

You know the map that shows you the clouds as they appear from the space?

eg. in the movie The Day After Tomorrow, when the astronauts are looking down at Earth during the storm, they see the clouds from above. There's a weather map that shows exactly the same view.. what's it called? p.s. i would love an animated map!

another eg. http://www.accuweather.com/en-us/jo/'amman/amman/s...

or for the exact map i'm looking for more like it: www.jordanweather.jo (the page is in Arabic, just follow these steps: 1- there are three big tabs, one with the number 10 on it, and there are four smaller ones under those. one of the 4 small tabs has two little gray clouds on it. press that tab and wait for the picture to appear, that's what i'm looking for!
