the future of geo view looks bleak
... in the form it currently is
My brother created a plugin that I want to expand into a new component - simply drop the attached jar file into the lib folder, restart, there's a new 'world' view.
+ dynamic, tiled maps are the future (overcome simple maps)
+ easier creation of coordinates (if you add a MAP attribute to a PLACe this plugin will let you locate a pin on the map)
+ support 5.5.1 MAP properties for storage
Things like better selection of locations by e.g. family branch is a good suggestion too.
>Or start with completing the data in Geoview and exporting them if needed?
I think the new geoview is going to let you do more within GenJ so in the future that direction seems good
