A tool to manipulate and create images of Earth
The Xrmap package is derived from the rmap package by Reza Naima. It provides a user-friendly X client for manipulating the CIA World data bank II global vector information and for generating images of the Earth. The images can be very accurately zoomed in, up to a factor of 100 or more.
Xrmap does have many more features than the original command line program 'rmap', especially it implements Rectangular, Mercator and Miller projections in addition to the Spherical projection, as well as reverse search of coordinates.
