Simple map viewer for GNOME Desktop
Emerillon is a OpenStreetMap viewer currently in early development. According to the lead developer, the map viewer is "destined to be GNOME's Map Viewer".
Current features via the plugin architecture include:
- Browse OpenStreetMaps among others
- Search the map for places using GeoNames
- Placemark locations for quick access later
As it is under development, no official stable release has been made yet. However, if one is using a Debian-based system, one can obtain the debian packages by adding external repository.
Currently (version 1.90) the code uses Gtk+ so it is not dependent on the complete Gnome environment:
