[RELEASE] XBMC Earth - Google Earth and Geocoder / Geolocation Script
#1
Thumbs Up 
Hi guys,
This is one of my first python script for XBMC and it’s the first one which I will post here in the Forum.
A few weeks ago I had the idea to bring Google Maps into XBMC. So my first look was to the LocatU Script from asteronimo. But this script doesn’t receive all the pictures directly from google. It is using a php-webside to connect between XBMC and google maps. I thought it should although work without any “man-in-the-middle”. So I have taken a look into the google Javascript API and onto mapki.com. Finally I found all information to connect to the google servers and to download the geopics.

I have used some code-elements and some pics from the Apple Movie Trailer Script. I hope this is OK!

You can download it from this google code page: http://code.google.com/p/xbmcplugin/


What is possible with the script:
- You can browse through the map.
- You can zoom in and out. (there is a known problem with some zoom levels)
- You can search for places or services
- Places and services will be marked on the map.
- You can hide or activate the street layer
- At this time all pics will be cached in scriptpath\temp (delete this by hand if the script is getting slow)
- There is a Basic Panoramio Support. Browse to your Favorite Area and choose Panoramio -> then Select the Picture for a larger view; Back will close the Picture again

How to use:
Controller:
White Button: Toggle hybrid view; Map-View; Area-View; Sat-View
Left-Trigger: Zoom out
Right-Trigger: Zoom in
back: Exit script

in Menu Map-Move:
digiPad: Moves the Map
back or A: back to Menu

Search:
-Focus in List will pulse the selected marker on the Map
-Select a List item will zoom to marker

Remote:
Info Button: Toggle hybrid view; Map-View; Area-View; Sat-View
2 Button: Zoom out
1 Button: Zoom in
back: Exit script

in Menu Map-Move:
Arrows: Moves the Map
back: back to Menu

Search:
-Focus in List will pulse the selected marker on the Map
-Select a List item will zoom to marker


Keyboard:
ins Button: Toggle hybrid view; Map-View; Area-View; Sat-View
Pg-dwn Button: Zoom out
Pg-up: Zoom in
ESC: Exit script

in Menu Map-Move:
Arrows: Moves the Map
ESC: back to Menu

Search:
-Focus in List will pulse the selected marker on the Map
-Select a List item will zoom to marker

At this time there is no Settings Menu, no support for proxies.

Feel free to reply with feedback on bugs, ideas, comments, etc.
