There's a bunch of them at http://www.radcyberzine.com/xglobe/

The one I used was put together (and copyrighted) by Living Earth, Inc.

I figured, I wasn't going to get a decent looking World Map put together
in GRASS, since I don't have any good world data and I don't have to
bandwidth to get it.  So, I used xplanet, which was designed just for
this very thing (http://xplanet.sourceforge.net).  Unfortunately,
xplanet doesn't give any choice for markers, so I "touched up" the
image in GIMP (and used the new ImageMap tool -- nice...).  For
"purity", I should have done this in GRASS, but...  I'll probably add
the list to the GRASS sources (maybe in sites format) so others can play
with it (and add themselves to it!).
