Re: [Shotwell] Map Widget Outlook

Here are my comments on the updated version:

Since this was asked: I have roughly 24000 photos with 3000 geotagged.

- There remain some map centering issues
  "When focussing back to some photo with gps info the map does not
center to that, but seems to stay where it was" (Ulf)
  "I sometimes end up in the middle of nowhere (central Russia or
   Atlantic Ocean) for no obvious reason"
 | I found a logic error that would have cause a zoom-in on an empty
 | marker layer instead of just doing nothing. The center mass of the
 | empty layer was probably determined as 0N 0W which is off the west
 | coast of Africa and pretty much "in the middle of nowhere." Not sure
 | what would have caused it to go to Russia though.

This works great now. I like the features that I can get highlighted
(and then tag etc.) pictures from a particular region of the wold.
Also, transporting geo tags from tagged to untagged photos is very useful.

- Should there be a default location?
 | I deferred that to whatever libchamplain decides to show but there is a
 | default zoom level. I'd be interested to hear how well it plays in
 | real-world tests. When you're zoom in below this level and you're
 | switching to a marker that's far away (not visible from two zoom levels
 | out of your current view) it will reset to it.
 | This should ideally also make long transitions less headachy.

For me, with the new behaviour, not urgent.

- Geoinfo should also be displayed in extended info dialog
 | I rarely use it, but the coords are there. I don't think we need a
 | second map there. We don't have more Geoinfo at the moment.

Yes, the geo coordinates (latitude. longitude) are visible under
"Extended Information". And yes, there are more geo infos like altitude,
image direction and other stuff, but less important, I suppose.

As it is, this extension is already *very* useful --
many thanks, Andreas!
