I just tried taking the geographical coordinates from the map module for a location such as Nain. Copying the coordinates and pasting them into the search window of Google Earth takes you to a satellite image of the same location as it looks today (or as current as the latest satellite image).

This might be useful in a presentation where you go from the map image and dissolve to the satellite image to get a good perspective on the location - then and now.

God Bless

I was using the maps yesterday and thought the same thing about Google Earth. It would be great to have some sort of configurable tool/icons to be able to access external internet resources from Accordance.

I'd like to see a contextual menu option "show on Google Maps" that would take the coordinates where the mouse was clicked and opens it in Google Maps
