Currently, this feature is hardcoded to link to the Nominatim search tool for OSM data. Example screenshot:
I'm hoping to gather some feedback on this (unfinished!) patch, specifically but not limited to:
- Should we use Nominatim rather than directly linking to OpenStreetMap? (Does the former provide better search results for imprecise inputs, for instance?)
- Should an option be provided to select other map services? (Google/Bing/etc)
In my personal calendar, the simple approach used in this patch works on about 30% of the entries. Other services might fare better, but may come at the cost of the user's privacy. 30% is good enough though, and for the other entries it's still quicker to fixup the search query (turning nonstrict address formats into strict ones) than to do a manual search.
- Gather feedback
- Add the link to other templates where applicable
