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

Ok, every map application seems to use an own urlscheme on iOS:
The Google maps uses [comgooglemaps://](https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/ios/urlscheme) and comgooglemaps-x-callback.
Apple maps supports but does not document maps:// and catches [http://maps.apple.com](https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/featuredarticles/iPhoneURLScheme_Reference/MapLinks/MapLinks.html)

The same is valid for Windows Phone on nokia phones. I just checked this. Clicking a geo: url triggers a search in the app store which gives google maps or so. But the installed offline navigation app "here" is not called.
So some desktop environments and all android would be able to use a geo url.
