Since I read on macOSXHints that everyone in the USA is shopping for teletubbie dolls today, it’s a good time to post things with a more international flavour.
Annard Brouwer has written an Address Book plugin that provides look-ups for European addresses through the ViaMichelin map service.
They may well be more accurate than other mapping services and come with pretty scaled images of significant landmarks:
Installation is easy. Download the script from Annard’s web site and place the plugin in your ~/Library/Address Book Plug-Ins folder.
Restart Address Book and you will see a “Via Michelin map of …” option in the contextual menu that appear when you click on the label of a European address.
Other plugins exist which do something similar for European addresses and you can find them in the Address Book section of this site’s plugin list.
