       gaia - 3D interface to the planet.


       gaia [options]


       gaia  is  an  Earth  viewer that lets you navigate around the globe and
       zoom into almost any place.


       -w, --world=MODEL
              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.

       -m, --master=TYPE
              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.

       -t, --test
              Add test slave layer. Used for testing like test master layer.

       -g, --grid
              Add grid slave layer. Shows dynamic geographical grid (not fully
              functional currently).

       -p, --gps=SOURCE
              Add  GPS  slave  layer.  Shows  location  of GPS device and it’s
              route.  Available sources are:

              gpsd://host[:port] - Connect to gpsd running on  specified  host
              and  port.  Port is optional and defaults to 2947. Gpsd supports
              many GPS devices  and  may  be  run  locally  or  remotely.  For
              details, see

              nmea://path  -  Path  to  device  (socket/fifo  also works) that
              outputs NMEA information from GPS device.

              test:// - Provides fake coordinates for layer testing.

       -h, --help
              Display a summary of the command line options.
