Google Earth tool broken[edit]

The page linked for the Google earth geocoding tool is now a 404, so it doesn't work anymore. -mattbuck (Talk) 15:20, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Comment out or remove? --Dschwen (talk) 15:28, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
I just tried the link on Commons:Geocoding and it seem to work just fine. I do not see any problem --Jarekt (talk) 20:07, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
It's 404 for me. Is there any chance of some sort of add-on to just generate it from GE without going via an external website? -mattbuck (Talk) 20:20, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
To clarify, the link seems to be working, but the tool isn't. -mattbuck (Talk) 15:19, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

The tool link we can see directly on file pages seems to work (it links toward toolserver, example.) But the link we can see in the detailed tools page (example) links to an external site like this. If the site is temporary broken we can wait, but if it's definitely broken, we may replace this by the toolserver link which still works. If someone has administrative rights to edit the GeoHack page, I also noticed that we could update the ViaMichelin link (still works but not exactly the same URL, must replace ".com/search/Cartes" by ".fr/web/Cartes-plans" for French version and ".com/web/Maps" for English version. Jeriby (talk) 20:35, 1 February 2014 (UTC) link works for me. --Jarekt (talk) 16:36, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Hooray, it appears to be working again! -mattbuck (Talk) 21:44, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
