{{man warn|This The Geography addon {{man label|[[GeoView]]}} based on OsmGpsMap has been integrated into Gramps 43.03, see the [[User_manual|user manual]] for an updated descriptionfurther information|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Geography_Category]]}}
==Geography==
To have these views working plot a map pin for an [[Gramps_Glossary#event|Event]] correctly, you the view needs to be told where to place the pin. This means each of those Events need to have events be related to placesa [[Gramps_Glossary#place|Place]].These places Moreover, these Places must have coordinates : data stored for latitude and longitude.
If one place a Place has no coordinatesdefined, we'll never see it no event in that Place will ever be seen on the map.If an Event has no Place defined, that Event will be omitted from the map
here There are different ways to add coordinates to places :# Within the Geography View's contextual menu popup , [[Geography#Adding_or_Linking_to_a_place|you can link or add one place]].# numeric coordinates may be keyed in directly using the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Place_Editor_dialog|Place Editor]] in one of the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Supported_longitude.2Flatitude_formats|supported formats]]# individual place coordinates can be added using an addon that harmonizes a Gramps Place with one of the GIS standards. While you have an active internet connection, for all moves on the map, at each zoom scale ...the map service tiles displayed under the pins in the Geography view will be saved in caching folders. Cached tiles are re-used rather than repeatedly requesting the same map service data.
If you have internet active, for all moves on the map, all zoom ... all tiles are saved.
When you are without internet, all tiles cached in a previous session can be used.
So, the map can be used without internet.If a tile has not been cached at that zoom scale, the cached tile at the closest wider zoom scale will be stretched to fit.
The only thing to do is for For each place or area region that you want to use without an internet connection is toselect themview later while offline, zoom into these places. You'll be able to use them those tiles again without connection.
'''''BE CAREFUL''''' : it {{man warn|Be aware of the storage requirements|Caching tiles can takes consume gigabytesof storage. If you use several maps, you need to have this same gigabytes size multiply of usage will be multiplied by the number of map services used.}}
