Mmh... I don't think you can use this module directly. Better look at the
It's an attempt to write an OpenGL Perl program that can display a fancy rotating planet, while also displaying useful geographic information on it.
The development is in a really really early stage now (Jan 2009). Don't expect miracles.
It's basically a 10-years old OpenGL C program, translated to Perl like 8 years ago, and then butchered and reassembled by yours truly during some nightly hacking sessions.
The Earth texture that comes with this distribution is a stripped down version (1024x512) of the original hi-res (4096x2048) I downloaded from Celestia Motherlode, if I remember correctly.
If you want to use the higher resolution texture, either find it yourself, or write me, or generate one by yourself with the
bin/build_texture.pl utility I wrote. You will need the mighty
Imager module for that.
