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 GeoPackage is a simple Liberty Service that a package can use to retrieve, store, and otherwise geographic data for any content. Geo Package adds three data fields for any content: Latitude, Longitude, and Elevation.

What the GeoPackage is NOT

The GeoPackage does not do geocoding, it does not store addresses, and it does not provide map visualization. The GeoPackage only stores lat/lng pairs and elevation values. GeoCoding must be obtained from outside the GeoPackage, likewise if you have an address you want to store, it must be stored somewhere other than in the GeoPackage table. If you are looking for map visualization, you may find the GmapsPackage, which uses the Google Maps API, suites your needs.
