locations

Create areas or locations and organize them as hierarchical tags. The pipe “|” character can be used to insert a new level (a group of locations).

A location is shown as a shape on the map when selected. Initially each location will be represented as a square or circle and can be changed to a rectangle or ellipse by adjusting the shape’s width and/or height. Each location is stored as tag entry under the geotagging collection.
