This is an Open Office smart tag that detect latitude and longitude and display the given latitude and longitude in a Google map.

Currently this supports only the formats given here http://www.maptools.com/UsingLatLon/Formats.html.
You can just enter a coordinate and it will be underlined with blue wave line. If you Ctrl + click it then a menu will appear. From there you can go to Google maps.

Smart tags are not very much popular though they were there since 2007. If you would like to know more about them please visit : http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Writer/Smart_Tags.

I installed but don't see a new toolbar or anything when pasting in a lat and long. How do we use it? Thanks!
