Proposed changes for enhancing GRAMPS by updating the Place object:

  1. make places more manageable by introducing a hiearchy
  2. integration with online map tools
  3. good definition of place and address/residence event in GRAMPS
  4. 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.
