Displays portions of the earth
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.
