What is Geody?
Geody is a world's search engine to find locations on Earth, the Moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury, and even Space.
Enter a name, or coordinates, for a location, or click on the map, and search results will be linked to Google Earth, NASA WorldWind, Celestia, Google Maps, Mapquest, or you can see the sky above such spot using Stellarium. You can export a location to a GPX file and use it in your GPS device as well.
You also get a list of places near the location you searched for.
Users can contribute to the database uploading their own pictures.
