A bit tricky to build.  Needs three projects from the site I
mentioned, plus it uses cmake.  (Cmake always finds my libraries in
the wrong locations on my system.)  You also have to build the
database (with a batch or shell script) and make sure all the
data/resources/fonts are available/found.  It looks like this is a
work in progress.  However, it has the makings of a really cute
educational game.  There are files with information about countries,
so you could edit them to show the geographic information you're
interested in or to keep information up-to-date should it change.
Think this would make an interesting way for students to learn about
other countries.  Could probably use some debugging/polishing.  The
user interface is nicely done.  Definitely think it's worth
investigating further.
