Hi morpheusxx,

I have seen, that you are working on picture geolocation. Do you plan only goolemaps and openstreetmap for this plugin or bing maps and nokia maps, too :). It would be nice to set as setting which map somebody will have.

Thanks,
commander

    The main purpose currently is to read the GPS coordinates out of images and then to do a geo lookup to find the city, state and country.

    The extracted information is shown in pictures section and can be used for filtering.

    I currently have no integration of maps planned, but maybe someone else writes a plugin? ;)

    I thought about your ideas... What is quite easy to implement can be a map, created from a WMS (WebMapService): Like this one from University Heidelberg, based on OpenStreetMaps:
    http://129.206.228.72/osm-proxy/ser...=479&BBOX=12.72709,52.25088,13.83322,52.87422

    The link creates a map of the requested area (example Berlin), just need to pass a matching boundary (BBOX). The image then can be included in any screen

    another suggestion, maybe for the long term:
    Show the pictures on a map. May mobilephone has this option and this is really great :)
    You have a map and all over this map you can see where you taken which picture :)
