* You need Qt and '''Marble development packages''' (or comparable git installations), version 1.3 (Marble library 0.13), shipped post KDE 4.8

* If ''Qt headers'' are not installed in '''/usr/include/qt4''' on your system, change the path in the g++ call above accordingly.

* Likewise, '''add -I /path/to/marble/headers''' if they're not to be found in /usr/include

We have seen in the previous tutorials how basic geometry can be painted using the GeoPainter, now let's see how we can make it hold information too!

GeoDataPlacemark is a class which implements the features of KML's Placemark. Basically, it represents an interest point (a simple point or a more complex geometry) on the map, which has some information attached.

In order to add a GeoDataPlacemark to our widget, we will use the GeoDataDocument class, which is a container for features (including placemarks) and styles. To make the Document visible, we need to add it to Marble's TreeModel, as shown in the example below:


#include <QtGui/QApplication>
#include <QtGui/QTreeView>
 
#include <marble/MarbleWidget.h>
#include <marble/GeoDataDocument.h>
#include <marble/GeoDataPlacemark.h>
#include <marble/GeoDataTreeModel.h>
#include <marble/MarbleModel.h>
 
#include <cstdio>
 
using namespace Marble;
 
 
int main(int argc, char** argv) {
 
	QApplication app(argc,argv);
 
	// Create a Marble QWidget without a parent
	MarbleWidget *mapWidget = new MarbleWidget();
 
	// Load the OpenStreetMap map
	mapWidget->setMapThemeId("earth/plain/plain.dgml");		 
 
	GeoDataPlacemark *place = new GeoDataPlacemark( "Marble Virtual City" );
	place->setCoordinate( 11.1, 48.41, 0.0, GeoDataCoordinates::Degree );
	place->setPopulation( 1024 );
	place->setCountryCode ( "Germany" );
 
	GeoDataDocument *document = new GeoDataDocument;
	document->append( place );
 
	// Add the document to MarbleWidget's tree model
	mapWidget->model()->treeModel()->addDocument( document );
 
	mapWidget->show();
 
	return app.exec();
}

Copy and paste the code above into a text editor. Then save it as my_marble.cpp and compile it by entering the following command on the command line:

 g++ -I /usr/include/qt4/ -o my_marble my_marble.cpp -lmarblewidget -lQtGui -lQtCore

If things go fine, execute ./my_marble and you are going to see the placemark of our newly created Marble Virtual City.

The data we have set for our city (Population and Country) also appear, when clicking on the placemark.
