Is possible to search for addresses using OpenLayers plugin in QGIS?


QGIS Openlayers is not Google Maps!
What you trying to do is also known as geocoding. Can be for instance accomplished with

  • the MMQGIS plugin -> geocode
  • The OSM place search plugin
  • The Geocode plugin and likely many more...

Or you could just use google maps and copy/paste the resulting longitude and latitude values into the address-bar in QGIS for a direct focus

  • Of course qgis+OL it's not the GM,I wanted to get a place directly in qgis. Thanks for the help, when I have time I will try to make a plugin with something like that. – Artur_Indio Oct 29 '14 at 22:54
