Looks good.  I added a german map as well.

If you have better arguments to xplanet to only get germany, please
post them here.
Just try

 xplanet -date "24 Jul 2003 12:00:00" -radius 700 -latitude 51.95 \
    -longitude 11.2 -marker_file xplanet-markers.txt \
    -output radius_700-51.95-11.2.png

(which has different argument syntax because I'm using testings
xplanet version)

It gave me germany and a lot of the rest of europa, but it was close
enough for my needs. :)

The coordinates are fetched from the database, and the map is
generated once in a while, when I remember to do it.
I guess we could make it even closer if we would test it with the
border cities of Germany but it is certainly a closer approximation
than yours.  I hope that this higher resolution would uncover
more than only three schools. ;-)

Kind regards
