[Marble-devel] Coordinate System of GeoPainter, GeoDataCoordinates and similar

I am fairly new to Marble and wondering which coordinate system is used
by classes such as GeoPainter and GeoDataCoordinates and how this
relates to different map projections. I probably will mostly use
OpenStreetMap which - as far as I know - uses a Mercator-On-Sphere
projection just like Google and Bing. However, since my application
requires drawing WG84 data onto the map I wonder whether I need to
transform my GPS coordinates before passing them to the Marble classes.
Thanks for hints and clarifications.
PS: I would highly appreciate a link to the API documentation on the
main project page, since the latter has a rather prominent google search
ranking, which the former is sadly lacking.
