This section is relevant to geocode searches and the map display of Geeqie.
The result of some internet or other searches for placenames can contain a latitude and longitude embedded in a text string. For example an openstreetmap.org search can give a URL such as:https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=51.5542%2C-0.1816#map=12/51.5542/-0.1818
If you paste such a string into the search box, the latitude/longitude can be automatically extracted and used as the origin of the search.You may also drag-and-drop a URL of this type onto the map to cause the map to be re-centered. This feature uses the file: /usr/local/lib/geeqie/geocode-parameters.awk You may create your own decodes by using the above file as an example, and storing the file in: ~/.config/geeqie/applications/geocode-parameters.awk If a successful decode was not made from the first file, your local version will then be used.
