wdb2marker is a script that converts the text version of the CIA World Data Bank II, to marker files suitable for Xplanet and IrcMarkers.

You either have to use the included set of one coloured pixel images named blue.png, green.png and red.png or apply the included xplanet-0.94-symbolsize.patch for Xplanet 0.94 to get single pixel markers.
