Type-in in a 1986 issue of the French 'Amstrad Magazine'.
Program (27K!) is Listed at end of video.

From the magazine (Courtesy of CPCRulez):

This program can be seen both as a kind of geographical atlas and as an educational one for children. It offers three main options:
1. locate a city in the world;
2. establish a course;
3. clear screen and restore original blank card.

After choosing the first option, the computer asks for the city to locate. Once this is done, confirm your choice with -RETURN- or -ENTER- : the selected town will begin to flash on the map. It is obvious that all the cities of the world are not presented in memory. It is up to you to add the missing cities of your choice. Option number two allows you to visualize a journey between two cities of the world. In fact, you can also take the opportunity to observe the position of the two reference cities (departure and arrival). After a first trip, the arrival city will be recognized as the departure city for the next lap. The "clear the screen" option allows you to return to a clearer screen when it starts to be overloaded...

NOTE: Remember to capitalize."
