Steven was seeking something actually integrated with Gramps.
Mapping has become part of many commercial products, and there is an
excellent implementation in phpGedView (open source).
Having watched this latter over a couple of years, the main problem is that
it requires a lot of effort/consistency/attention to detail to get it right.
The mapping services are quite rigid in how places are named, and users must
observe there conditions. And there is always the problem of
Actually coding (my experience is limited to PHP) is not difficult. As the
mapping is an on-line service, users need a good internet connection.

And because mapping is an on-line service - there are serious privacy
issues, and any map integration should be off by default. IMHO there
should be a warning screen that explains that one's addresses are being
sent off to $SERVICE when this is enabled.
