GEPS 006: Better Place handling
Proposed changes for enhancing GRAMPS by updating the Place object:
- make places more manageable by introducing a hiearchy
- integration with online map tools
- good definition of place and address/residence event in GRAMPS
- alternative place with a date span? Define one ideal way of working with alternative place.
Time and again users pose questions on improving the place structure of GRAMPS. This GEPS is about defining a new improved way of handling place, keeping backward compatibility with GEDCOM/present GRAMPS.
Many things are also not well designed, in that GRAMPS allows the user to do as he likes, without guiding the user to a good way of storing place data.
