firefox Geo extension


GeoURL is, in brief, a geographical coordinates to URL reverse directory.

this extension adds a new button to the browser's status bar. if a document features either an ICBM or geo.position META element, this extension allows to open geo-related sites (such as Google Maps) and pass on the document's coordinates.

update: version 0.7 adds direct support for Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Microsoft Live Local, Multimap, Flickr, Wikimapia, OpenStreetMap, GeoURL. behind the scenes, the extension code has been completely rewritten in preparation of version 1.0, which will allow users to add / modify / delete their own preferred geo-related services (as long as they use a URI-based REST API).
