1. Allow searching locations on map.

 - Add a QLineEdit widget which will accept a query to search places on map. See .

 - Then center the map on the first search result.

2. In the last task , the fill color of UKraine was changed by modifying the colorMap values in political.dgml . But that also changes the color of other countries which have same color index as that of UKraine. So, this task is about highlighting only a particular country without affecting fill colors of other countries.

- GeoDataDocument from data file boundaryplacemarks.cache contains point placemarks. These placemarks show the names of countries on map. You need to get placemark for the country you want to highlight.

- GeoDataDocument from data file ne_50m_admin_0_countries.pn2 contains placemarks which show the boundaries for countries. Get the geometry ( which is a polygon ) of the placemark. Find whether the point ( from the point placemark you selected in first step ) lies in the placemark's geometry. If yes, then it's the correct placemark, showing the country you want to highlight.

- To highlight the country you need to change the styling of the placemark you got in second step. Change the styleUrl of the placemark so that it is highlighted.
