GPS Co-ordinates

Hi Guys,

MY PROBLEM:

In my application in the background, I want to have a world map.

So while creating some element on the map, i want to specify the GPS co-ordinates for that element.

Then that particular element has to go to the specified position on the map.

[ The element i refered here is another small image say like some thumb nail or tile ]

Requirement 2:
Say I created a element in india location and then, if I change the background image to some other map say africa map,
then the elements which I created must not appear.

Need help from you guys:

How can I do this?
It is an stand alone application which uses swings/awt.

Thanks in advance,
Ramesh S

Can you change some of the requirements? If you write it as a web application, and use GoogleMaps, its trivial to do what you want.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
