I'm working with a database that has lots of items. We were going to use the CSV importer to import content from the database into Omeka. All items have a GIS coordinate. Is there a way to import the coordinates (using CSV) and have them automatically be placed on the google map? It seems a bit tedious to have to have to go in and place them on the google map individually...
Right now the CSV plugin maps to Dublin Core fields, but it seems like it'd be possible to map data from the CSV plugin to the latitude and longitude fields used by the Geolocation field. In that scenario, you'd be able to automate the process.
Are you comfortable hacking a little code? You may want to ask a question about this on the developer list (http://groups.google.com/group/omeka-dev/) where more hackers hang out.
