Can marble be used in an identical way as libkgeomap, as a QWidget only 
displaying a map with not only coordinates but also photo thumbnails (grouping 
the coordinates when the zoom factor is too low to display them all etc.), GPX 
tracks and so on?

If so, we (at KPA) should rethink our implementation (but I don't think that 
libkgeomap has been written for no reason ...). But after all, it's a eligible 
question (which surely can be answered by Gilles Caulier and/or Michael 

Apart from that: If Google's terms of service allow using Google maps like 
libkgeomap does, I think it should be a decision of the user which map he/she 
wants to see.
