An AddressBook plug-in for Swiss satellite maps Apps
I wrote a small AppleScript plugin for Address Book for addresses in Switzerland. It displays a satellite view of the location using the map.search.ch service. The actual script, along with some instructions, are available here.

Sorry, but none of the scripts work when copied from the web page into Script Editor.

Works, if you download the script

It does not work if you copy the webpage into the script editor (must be a line break), but if you download the file and then open it in the script editor and compile it, it works.

Yes, it works if you first load it into the script editor and give it the suffix ".scpt". It would work better if it also accepted the Swiss prefix "CH-" before the four letter postal code / Postleitzahl, e.g. CH-8001 for downtown Z├╝rich. Currently it only works if your address book entry contains "8001", not "CH-8001".

OK, when downloaded the script does work (The english link on the page doesn't work BTW).
What country code format is it expecting. No matter what I try for a UK address it insists on trying to look up the address in the US

sorry to be the party pooper, but i've adapted another script last october and posted it on my blog (habi.gna.ch/blog/archives/000460.html). because the search.ch-team made the URI so easy the whole script was quite easy to program (it was actually my first apple-script..) but beware: the map.search.ch-service only works for addresses in switzerland!
