Additional geography view with a context menu

Place Coordinate Gramplet

It also provides a geography view Place Coordinate Gramplet View with a context menu that enables:

2. Adding addresses as new places

3. Linking existing places with geolocations

Prerequisites

Requires GeocodeGlib be installed.

GeocodeGlib/geocode-glib is a convenience library for the geocoding (finding longitude, and latitude from an address) and reverse geocoding (finding an address from coordinates). It uses Nominatim service (from openstreetmap.org ) to achieve that. It also caches (reverse-)geocoding requests for faster results and to avoid unnecessary server load.

Issues

  • On linux an older version of libgeocode-glib0 (3.18.2) causes segmentation faults when pressing the search button.
    • Please update to a newer version of that library. For example:
   wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/geocode-glib/libgeocode-glib0_3.25.4.1-4ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb
   apt-get install ./libgeocode-glib0_3.25.4.1-4ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb
