Fedora needs a GPS Gnome menu?

There are some really cool gps applications and tools in Fedora repositories, but where are they located in Gnome menu once you install them?
I found some in Education (Viking), in Graphics (xgpx, xgps speed) and in Internet menu (Gpsdrive, gpsman, TangoGPS, VIking).
Surely GPS apps could be better grouped? Maybe they should even have their own menu? What are your thoughts on this?

    there is the danger in creating a very long and hard to navigate menu, i think it make sense to try to organize them in the existing categories based on functionality. an ordinary users will hav all of those applications installed or just one or two?

    I agree. Something like Mapping or “Location Services”. I maintain a couple of the packages and agree this would be a welcome addition. I think it should be something decided upstream though so it standard everywhere

      Nice suggestion; Location tools or something similar sounds cool.
