Xrmap interactively displays portions of the Earth, using the huge CIA world vector map. It is based on an earlier console utility 'rmap' by Reza Naima (http://www.reza.net/rmap/). It shows political boundaries, major and minor rivers, glaciers, lakes, canals, etc. The map is accurate to a very large zoom factor (possibly exceeding 100). Spherical, rectangular, Mercator and Miller projections are implemented, and all features can be set interactively from the GUI.
