[openstreetmap-website] Implement `geo:` URLs for sharing (#799)

It would be nice to be able to directly copy a [Geo URL](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoURL) from the share sidebar.
Geo URLs have several advantages:
* Directly handled by a special application as configured by the receiver
* Usable without connection to `osm.org` (No internet connection, or `osm.org` is down)
* Privacy conserving
The Geo URL could also be made clickable to the initial user (the *sharing* one), as they could follow the link and have their favourite application open.
This is for example useful if their favourite routing application has a crappy search function, for which they then could use `osm.org`
