Here's a feature that will be useful: in some future version we are going to embed the location info directly into screenshot files (as EXIF in JPG or a comment in PNG). We will then add a context handler into Windows, so that there will be "Open in Outerra" available when right-clicking on the image. When Outerra is invoked this way, it will jump directly to the location as indicated in the image file.
It wouldn't be easier to add handling of links like anteworld://teleport/lat/lon? It would be really nice feature :)

wouldn't be wise to integrate the notion of user-defined "control points" and "flight path" :
- control points are defined by position = 3 coord (lat,long,altitude) AND orientation = also 3 coord
- adding another 3 coord for the viewing direction / camera looking at... 
- flight paths are interpolated curves between successive control points (with several interpolation methods possible between the vectors)

then you could also associate a "speed" notion, with constant speed along the trajectory, and speed setpoint (speed at control points)...

doing so you get the minimum needed : location + look-at,
plus more powerful things

So, I guess this means we can have underground environments? :p
