History of GeoPackage

^__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 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 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

1. what is $gPreviewStyle used for?

2. why does name of service as set in registerPackage not match the package name in other packages such as Pigeonholes and Stars, where the service is named LIBERTY_SERVICE_CATEGORIZATION and LIBERTY_SERVICE_RATINGS
