I'm using Debian sid myself, so I can't exactly tell you what to do on Jessie.

I've always built KGeoMap on my own because of the packaging situation in 
Debian. This works quite well for me, even though I have to admit that having 
kgeomap (and other Digikam-related libs) in its own package would be the nicer 

If you need pointers for building kgeomap on your own, I can help you...
