Maps on standby.

I'm looking for a map screensaver, preferably of the world, that flies around and shows different facts about different places.

I tried 3D World Map from Longgame, but I don't really like it and it doesn't meet my needs.

Response by poster: Oh, and other screensavers that are slick and informational (displays the news, etc) are welcome.

SunClock, perhaps?

xplanet will generate maps. You'd have to add the facts yourself. You can also have it display current cloud cover, earthquakes, volcanos, local weather. To use it as a screensaver would require an additional screensaver that displayed a named image file.
