'''All we need to understand GeoView.'''
So, I am working on a new map renderer since some month now.
If you are impatient, go there : ( I can't create a page . if someone can create a link here ... )[[Geography]]
==GeoView is divided in two parts : ==
This module is now in two parts in 3.2. I'll try to explain how to install them and how to use them. You have two new views named [[Geography]] (geoviev) and Web(htmlrenderer).
=== The html rendering engine ===
This module is called htmlrenderer. We use it when we use the Web view.
** [ PyWebKitGTK-1.1.7.win32-py2.6.msi]
[[All In One Gramps Software Bundle for Windows|Gramps AIO package]] contains WebKitGTK-1.2.5 and PyWebKitGTK-1.1.8

# install the required backend so you can see webpages inside of GRAMPS.
# set the GeoView Preferences
# use the appropriate latidude and longitude format in your data (Note: the [[Addon:Place completion tool]] can look up latitude and longitude of the places defined in GRAMPS.)
The first is simple to achieve. Start a text editor and go to your gramps home directory, and open the keys.ini file. Scoll down to the interface section, and look for the ''data-views'' variable. On a clean install of GRAMPS, this variable is normally:
==== Supported longitude/latitude formats ====
When you create/modify a place, the possible formats used for longitude/latitude are : * Floating point e.g. +12.0154 -124.3647 * Classic  e.g. 50°52'21.92"N 124°52'21.92"E The degree symbol can be either UTF-8 code c2b00a, UTF-8 code c2ba0a or the hash (#) character.The seconds symbol can be either one double quote (") character or two single quote (') characters.
'D.D4' : degree notation, 4 decimals * Colon eg +12.0154 , -124.3647 'De.D8' : degree notation, 8 decimals (precision like ISO-DMS) eg +12g.01543265 , -124.36473268 'DEG' : degree, minutes, seconds notation eg 50°52'21.92"N , 124°52'21.92"E ° has UTF-8 code c2b00a or N 50º52'21.92" , E 124º52'21.92" º has UTF-8 code c2ba0a The character for seconds can be either one double quote " or two single quote ' 'DEG-:' : degree, minutes, seconds notation with : eg -50:52:21.92 , 124:52:21.92 'ISO-D' : ISO 6709 degree notation i.e. ±DD.DDDD±DDD.DDDD 'ISO-DM' : ISO 6709 degree, minutes notation * Modified GEDCOM  i.e. ±DDMMg.MMM±DDDMM12.MMM 'ISO-DMS' : ISO 6709 degree, minutes, seconds notation i.e. ±DDMMSS.SS±DDDMMSS0154N 124.SS3647E
==== The maps providers ====
Remove python-webkit and python-gtkmozembed. You'll never see geoview. See the specific packages for your distribution.
