           Summary: Improve the gui of the gpssync plugin.
           Product: kipiplugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: GPSSync

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.1)

I think it would be great if the google maps geolocalization gui is improved.

Here are my suggestions:

1- Sometimes it is quicker to type an address than zoom and pan using the map.
It would be great to add a text area to "Find a location" as in google maps. This feature is limited to 50000 queries by day by google, but I think it is ok for the time being ;-)

2- It would be great to have a list of currently selected pictures with thumbnails.

To be clearer: the windows is composed by the google map above and a widget under.
This widget consists in a list a pictures with thumbnails. 
When you open the plugin the list is the list of currently selected pictures in the host application. You have the possibility to change that using a menu which contains the list of albums. This widget could be reused by other kipi plugins (I think of galleryexport for instance because it does not take into account the current selection)

3- It would be great to assign coordinates to pictures by drag and drop. If the user has selected several pictures in the list then they all get the new coordinates. 

4- I think the google map window should be the first window which is opened by the plugin.
The currently selected pictures from host which are geolocalized are displayed on the map.
Maybe compute the zoom factor to include on the map all the selected picture. 
The gps track sync feature is a more advance feature which could be accessed by a button:
"Automatically localize using a gps track" or something like that.

I am willing to help on that but I first need to install a more recent distribution to have a konqueror compatible with googlemaps ;-)
