Exporting geographic information

Trying to use Omeka for several class projects with students creating the content. Trying to have them map a series of locations. We need to reuse these locations for another part of the project. What is the best way to extract the coordinates (as they are related to an item) from the geolocation plugin?

Any alternate solutions to creating geographic information inside Omeka and returning it would be welcome.


It might not be pretty, but the best way I can think of is to use the API (make sure it’s turned on in the site settings)

Start at the home page and add /api/geolocations?pretty_print to the url. That will give you a list of the stored geolocation data in JSON format. That will at least make the data available, but it’ll likely take some grunt work to reuse the latitude and longitude data back in the site.
