First, it is important, that you use a very recent svn check-out
of marble, because a bug concerning the geo-search is fixed there.
I checked it for one region, and it worked fine,
but that does not mean that in other situations
(southern hemisphere, etc. etc. ;-), things are broken.

Please test with current marble svn and file any bugs
(which might be either due to digikam or marble).

Concerning a more advanced of display of locations of images:
we might be able to do a bit already now, but for
more fancy stuff we will need better kml support in marble.

Best, Arnd
