Make "Current Location" None USCentric
Short, concise description of the idea
Allow users to specify a country code for google maps linking.
Full description of the idea
If I specify my "Current Location" then a link is added that uses maps.google.com which works fine if the location is in the US but can be pot luck for a location in the UK. For example "Upton House" works but "Batsford Arboretum GL56" fails. However, if I use maps.google.co.uk to find the location it is correctly identified.
- Users outside of the US would be able to more accurately specify the location of the journal entry without having to resort to latitude,longitude syntax.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- An extra input box would be needed on the submit page which users would only need to use if the default maps.google.com identified the correct location.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- What I would like to do is to be able to specify the particular google maps site that is able to correctly identify the location be that .co.uk, .fr etc, either from a drop down list, or by typing a suffix to replace .com in maps.google.com
