Hi all,

I have a couple questions about geolocation in org mode. I am still in the first two weeks of learning org mode and shifting my workflow to it.

* Is there a standard way to specify a point, line, polygon in org mode?

We take a lot of notes about installation of science gear in the field and make observations. Being able to tag where this was in a standard way would be great. I just write WKT (Well-know text), but if there is already a standard for org mode, it would be good for me to stick with that.

* Is there an easy way to call a geolocation service from inside of org-mode to tag the location of an entry?

* And, Has there been any thought to exporting a time and location tagged KML of a document? This would make reporting notes from research cruises on ships from org mode be really powerful.

It would be great to move beyond the hand crafted things that I do for this. Imagine a field scientist with a laptop or MobileOrg taking notes. One example of the kind of thing that I would like to produce:
