Map Life Facts

Map Life Facts Plugin Window

This Plugin uses Google Mapping Services and Google Geocoding Services to plot markers on web page maps. The Latitude & Longitude are plotted from Fact locations held in Place or Address fields within your GEDCOM database.

The user interface is described under the following headings:

Remember to hover the cursor over buttons and fields to obtain a popup tooltip of advice.

First time users can click the Geocode Plot All Locations button to plot Place names, but if there are too many, then after a while use the Stop Plotting Locations button to halt plotting.

Use the Next Plotted button to review the accuracy of plotted locations, and the Next Unplotted button to identify unrecognised locations. The Geocode Location Plots help page advises how to improve plotting.

On the Create Web Page Maps tab, click the Map This Individual button to create a Web Page Map for the currently chosen Individual and display it in your default browser. The Create Web Page Maps help page explains how to use other options.

Explore the Set Preference Options that govern plot accuracy and style, and allow maps to be integrated with Family Tree CD/Website web pages.
