Does anyone here know, the URL of a good online WORLD map, which, to some myopic programmers disgust, actually is outside of the USA map,(small minded people...) which shows geographic details such as, political borders, transport, rivers, valleys, etc.?

Something like our school atlases, BUT, with the ability to type in destinations, as we do with Google Earth, and be directed to the area in question?

Tracy and I did use Google Maps few months ago, when we planned our trip to Minnesota, but, I now want to look at areas inside India (which, god forbid, is not part of the USA....)

Good one Eric..But,maybe got it round the wrong way! Maybe,the way India & China are going (like full on supercharged,on nitro) maybe India will get to own USA,then it would be USI ! The balance between the "have" and "have nots" is slowly changing. "Older timers" will remember the many,many countries (colonies) on the world map when we went to school (on those days when I was'nt "wagging" it),that were coloured in red,not representing a political persuasion,but rather,a group of countries under the,then,almighty United Kingdom banner.Pehaps nature has decreed that,when an individual,or nation reaches the apex,having won the long,enduring battle to climb up this side,there is always going to be another aggressive party battling their way up the other side with every intention to occupy the newly conquered summitt.Life's interesting is'nt it?Would'nt be dead for quids! Have fun..RockyOne

Hi Lone Wolf,

I find that The CIA World Factbook is a really useful source of information on countries.

I feel like a secret agent, now that I've got it all bookmarked.

Secret agent Wolf 181 (which is metric for 69... think about it...)
