-^__NOTICE:__ This package is just getting off the ground, and is not even available in CVS yet. It is planned to be a simple Liberty Service. If you are interested in this package, have questions, or want to contribute, contact wjames5 on IRC #bitweaver on freenode.net^
+The Geo Package is a simple Liberty Service that extends Liberty Content by adding a table for geo locational data. It provides a table for lat, lng, elevation, and elevation unit of measure, and it provides service methods for load, list load, storage, and expunge - so that geo data can automatically be added to any content in bitweaver.

-!!What the Geo Package is ''NOT''
+!!!What the Geo Package is ''NOT''
 The Geo Package does not do geocoding, it does not store addresses, and it does not provide map visualization. The Geo Package only stores lat/lng pairs and elevation values. Geocoding must be obtained from outside the Geo Package, likewise if you have an address you want to store, it must be stored somewhere other than in the Geo Package table. If you are looking for map visualization, you may find the GmapPackage, which uses the Google Maps API, will suite your needs.
-!!Some Questions on Developing a Liberty Service
-When should a service function be its own process and when should it use the class method?
+!!!Using GeoPackage with GmapPackage
+The Gmap Package has been rewriten to utilize the funtionality of Geo and through its own set of services, automatically includeds a Geo lat/lng form into all content editing forms. This makes it easy to click on a map and get lat/lng values and assign them to your wiki page, articles, blog post, user preferences, etc.
