my mind too. I'm sure the applications I have in mind are just a part  
of what can be done.
The old one born with the idea to offer a simple navigation tool,  
this is more an application framework.
Ex: I've tried do duplicate the viewport in a new window as in modern  
GIS system but without success (for the moment).

you are right, it's like that. I wrote this interface quite fast,  
I've left many little thing aside and this is one that can be changed.

right. It's like that. Sorry, I've forgot to upload a file yesterday.  
This Identify function is provisory. We are working on it, don't know  
when but hope to post it very soon.

> All in all, you guys are doing an awesome job with this stuff.
