Around You

Good news, your favourite virtual globe Marble now is your virtual explorer!

In parallel with the world domination plan, Dennis is porting Marble to Plasma Active and as my Season of KDE project, I am trying to help him as much as I can. To help users to find the places around them, I created Explore activity, an activity that displays popular places on the map and allows you to get additional information about these places. It uses Foursquare’s rich venue data powered by its users. Here is a screencast about it:

You can test it out by downloading and compiling Marble’s git branch sok-2012-plasma-active. Any suggestions? Write a comment below.
