Geo-coding for new node-maps requires unnecessary assets

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      At present, five assets are required before a node will be geo-coded and drawn on the node-map: address1, city, state, zip, country.

      In the UK at least, most of this information is unnecessary - the 7-character postcode is sufficient to narrow the pin to within typically 100 metres of the expected destination - more than adequate for a country-wide map of hundreds of nodes!

      Presently, this means I must fill the address1, state and city fields with a single period (image attached) in order that the field is non-empty, causing great wastage and unnecessary bulk in the provisioning requisition.

      I recommend that the data required for geocoding should be reduced to 'zip + country.'
