gaia - 3D interface to the planet.
gaia is an Earth viewer that lets you navigate around the globe and
zoom into almost any place.
Select world model. Default model is ‘flat’, which gives you
simple flat world view, similar to plain paper map. No rotation
or tilt, but this model is fastest. Another model currently
available is ‘3d’, which will show you earth as a globe with
extended navigation functions. It’s currently not finished, so
not much of use.
Select master layer. Master layer determines where earth data
comes from and how it’s shown. Default master layer is ‘nasa’,
which needs no explanation. Another layer is ‘test’ used
primarily for testing other components.
Add test slave layer. Used for testing like test master layer.

Add GPS slave layer. Shows location of GPS device and it’s
route. Available sources are:
