The positioning of landmarks which don't fall into either of those categories is best done with as accurate a map as you have available, either using FGSD with a scanned or digital map, or a service like www.multimap.com (for the UK I find www.streetmap.co.uk slightly more useful, because although it has a smaller selection of maps you can get the exact grid reference of the "pointer" on the map). The scenery database we're developing will hopefully be able to handle different national grid systems so that info can be submitted in whatever format is convenient, with convertion to lat/lon handled automatically (so far just OSGB is supported, but this can easily be extended as long as conversion functions are available).
Ah, www.multimap.com helped me to figure out my first coordinate:
There's a windmill at:
Location: Germany X: 1294800m Y: 6110700m Lat: 48:12:51N (48.2142) Lon: 11:37:52E (11.631)
But how do I add it online to the database? (http://www.stockill.org/fgfsdb/objects.php)
You don't.... yet.
Give me another week or so, and the scenery database should be at a stage where you can add your own objects to it.
Of course nobody has made a windmill model yet, although I need to do a model of a wind turbine (I assume you're talking about an old stye windmill, not a modern electricity producing wind turbine?
