RMAP(1)			    General Commands Manual		       RMAP(1)

N
       rmap - Map portions of the earth	from long/lat info

S
	 rmap --cities --zoom=20 --category=all	--yrot=-120
	      --xrot 35	--continent=all	--outfile=south_california.gif

D
       This manual page	documents the utility rmap.  rmap is a small utility
       that goes against a custom format of the	CIA's world data bank II
       global vector information to generate images of the earth from either a
       distance	fairly zoomed in.  There are a variety of options to control
       the display of the image.  The format of	the image depends on the
       version of libgd	that you have.	Older versions generate	gifs, but due
       to copyright issues, the	newer ones generate png	or jpegs.

O
       --zoom number
	    Zoom level of the earth.  Deafault is 1 which is the whole earth.

       --xrot number
	    Rotate the earth around the	x-axis (Latitude) in degrees.

       --yrot number
	    Rotate the earth around the	y-axis (Longitude) in degrees.

       --zrot number
	    Rotate the earth around the	z-axis in degrees.

       --colorfile filename
	    The	path to	the colorfile which defines the	colors various things
	    will be displayed in, or if	they will be displayed at all.	If the
	    value is not specified, the	file ~/.rmaprc will be checked,	and
	    then the default file (rmap.colors).  The location of this file is
	    specified at compile time based on the either the --prefix or
	    --datadir options to configure.

       --datafile filename
	    The	path to	the datafile.  The default location of this file is
	    specified at compile time based on the either the --prefix or
	    --datadir options to configure.

       --outfile filename
	    The	path of	the image to be	generated.  If none is specified, then
	    EarthImage will be generated in the	current	working	directory.

       --continent list
	    Either the word `aallll' or a list of comma seperated numbers where
	    1=Africa, 2=Asia, 3=Europe,	4=N. America, 5=S. America.  If	no
	    option is specified	then `aallll' is assumed.

       --category list
	    Either the word `aallll' or a list of comma seperated numbers where
	    1=US State Boundaries, 2=Rivers, 3=International Boundaries,
	    4=Coasts, Islands, Lakes.  If no option is specified then `aallll' is
	    assumed.

       --height	number
	    The	height of the image to generate, in pixles.

       --width number
	    The	width of the image to generate,	in pixles.

       --nogridlines
	    Do not display gridlines ontop of the earth.  By default they are
	    drawn in red, spaced at 15 degrees.

       --cities
	    Overlay all	applicable city	names (from the	file city.h) on	top of
	    the	image.

       -h   Display a brief help page, then terminate.

       -v   Display the	version	of code.

A
       Reza Naima <reza@reza.net>

B
       This is the first released version, so there are	bound to be bugs.
       Also, as	always,	beware of buffer overflow attacks if you use this in a
       web-based application.
