Setting coordinates with the Map dashboard item

by jdoscher on Mon Sep 14, 2015 7:28 pm

Is it possible to set the GPS coordinate values using the map widget? I'd like to run a python script to read the latitude and longitude of the pinpoint set on an IO map.

Thanks!
Jay

Not yet, but I see no reason we couldn't add this as a new feature in the future. Seems like a good idea if we can get the UI right. I'll create an issue for it in our tracker.

Thanks!

That would be cool- I'm thinking of a basic map control where you'd zoom in/out and pan, but drop a pin for the coordinates you want. Thanks!
