Thanks for the suggestions.  But I found that ViewProp from ZL2HAM can do it 
based on physical QTH locations (it does a QRZ.COM lookup for each entry). 
It's a very slick application.

QScope does that.

However it can only use the information you provide :
- with ADIF file, it will use geolocation from Gridsquare locator if 
available, if not, it will guess geolocation from callsign using AD1C 
- with Cabrillo, the only way is to guess geolocation from callsign

What I would do if I were you :
- Import my Cabrillo/ADIF into DXKeeper (or any other "fully featured" 
logbook software)
- USe DXKeeper to retrieve Gridsquare info from QRZ.com or another callbook
- export the ADIF file and import it to QScope
