I compiled Wireshark 3.4.0 on CentOS 8 and pointed it to maxmind database location. When I open IPv4 tab in Endpoints I see columns for Country, City, AS Number but no columns for laptitude and longtitude even though I can see them in the packet capture. The same is happening in Wireshark 3.2.8 on Kali. Were these columns removed, or there is an option to add them somehow?

Thanks. Ivan

AFAICT, the Qt version of Wireshark has never had columns for latitude or longitude and suspect these were a feature of the old and long deprecated GTK version.

The columns for the Endpoints dialog are not modifiable by users.

Columns in the main UI (packet list) are modifiable and adding latitude and longitude columns is possible, but these will refer to the source or destination IP addresses in the frame rather than the simpler view of the endpoints.

Please submit an enhancement request as an Issue at the Wireshark GitLab site to request the addition of lat\long as columns in the Endpoints dialog.

Thank you. I opened the enhancement request #17049 on GitLab.
