Usability of the OSM map page

Posted by GoemonGPS on 4 January 2012 in English (English)

Sometimes I have some coordinates and want to jump to this place quickly. But it is not possible to copy'n'paste the coordinates to the search field (eg: N49°57.141 E10°22.626). Can we add this functionality? (I don't want to go to Google maps anymore - they messed up all streets/ways/oneways during their last update)

regards

It's sort of there, but you need to convert to decimal first:

Search for this: 49.952350 10.377100

Thank you. And ok, so far I have not noticed. But how inconvinent is that? Does anybody know where to drop feature requests? Could there be any nice logic that recognises all kind of coordiantes?

For feature requests, you add a ticket on Trac: http://trac.openstreetmap.org/
Set the component as "website".

I agree, it would be nice if the website could accept more kinds of coordinates.

There is already a Tiket in the Trac:
http://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/574

The plain coordinate format feature was added later, see:http://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/1805

I added my request as a comment to ticket #574.
http://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/574

Please bump it support the request.
