    Im guessing it is not only in Denmark there is access to get old maps showing the old areas where our ancestors were living. In this case I would love to mark a point at these maps (image file) in the excact area. I know face tagging has been up for discussion before. And this is prolly the same code. Could this be considered in the future to have this ability?

    You are right, this would be the same code. I’m not looking at “face-tagging” as such. That implies some form of automatic recognition of faces. I am looking at the code for “image mapping” – the ability to manually add clickable-areas overlaid on any image. No idea when it might be available though, but almost certainly this year.

    That would be nice ๐Ÿ™‚ And yeah since it is almost same code it can be use in such of face-tagging too. Specially if you make an ability to add a “text-box” with the tag ๐Ÿ™‚ Then we can just do that manually ๐Ÿ˜›

    @Kiwi are you still going to implement image mapping like it was done in “faces” module in Webtrees? ๐Ÿ™‚ (https://github.com/UksusoFF/webtrees-faces)

    Not at this moment. My priority is getting kiwitrees-nova released. That is still some months away. My time is more limited these days, unfortunately. Even then, this would still be a very low priority for me.

    I am still monitoring ‘UksusoFF’s development. He is making progress, but still, a couple of things are needed that I feel are essential (autocomplete/search for INDIs to add to map and a config page to list/review all maps) but it is starting to look more useful. Probably the greatest issue is a safe solution to importing/exporting GEDCOM files without risk of losing data or connections to image maps.

    But, I think he is still looking at a poor solution. Ultimately I feel that the best answer is to store the map data in the image Exif properties. Then all kiwitrees needs are the tools to read and write that data – which will probably have other more general media-use benefits too.

    Such possibilities will be easier in kiwitrees-nova as it has a more consistent javascript framework, less prone to code conflicts, which is a problem that webtrees module still suffers from.
