Loading GPS Coordinates – Jedox XML Connection

Loading GPS Coordinates – Jedox XML Connection

Happy New Year, fellow Jedox enthusiasts! In today's article, we'll be delving into an interesting use case: extracting GPS coordinates in XML format from the OpenStreetMap Nominatim API (https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/).
