'''All we need to understand and test GeoView.'''
== Why GeoView or Geography ? ==
I would like to see my ancestors all around the world on a map. And if possible, I would like to see them moving during time periods.
 
Geoview is divided in two parts :
=== The html rendering engine ===
=== The Geographic part ===
== Installation ==
Is there a python-webkit package on MAC ?
==== gecko ====
== Creating new places from GeoView ==
You center the map for the place you want to create.
You can use the double click for that.
When you are sure the position is OK, click on the "+" button in the tools bar.
Now, the place editor is opened. Enter all the field necessary for this new place then click on the OK button. That's all.
== Associate a new position to an already existing place ==
You center the map for the place you want to modify like for creating a new place.
When you are sure the position is OK, click on the "map" button in the tools near the "+" button described above.
A places list is opened. Choose the place you want to modify then click on the OK button.
 
You can use this method to modify the position you used in a prior creation.

Your modifications are welcomed ...

== If you get a crash when starting gramps ==
It's probably a webkit problem.
So, you have two possibilities :
=== Remove webkit rendering engine only ===
Remove webkit and install gtkmozembed (gecko) is not already installed
You'll have the gecko rendering.
=== Remove all rendering engines ===
Remove python-webkit and python-gtkmozembed. You'll never see geoview.
