When you blog about a specific location, you may want link to it. On android devices, you can use links in the style
geo:37.786971,-122.399677 for opening the location in a native map app such as Google Maps. However, most browsers will not understand this yet. On the other hand, if you link to the Open Street Map project directly, some users may not prefer this.
With this plugin, you can link to geo locations and support the user with a handler for it. Activating a geo-link will show a popup menu with various options for the user.
The urls have to follow the specification from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geo_URI.
