<para>On the right you can see a topographical map of our beautiful home planet. To allow for better orientation the map offers a scale bar in the lower left corner as well as a windrose on the top right. To navigate and to control the view you can use the tools on the <guilabel>Navigation</guilabel> info box at the right: Press the arrow buttons to rotate the globe. The <guilabel>Up</guilabel> and <guilabel>Down</guilabel> arrow buttons will tilt the earth axis back and forth. The <guilabel>Left</guilabel> and <guilabel>Right</guilabel> arrow buttons will make the earth spin around its physical axis.
