Re: Mapping errors / place name editing with search and replace plugin


Mike Tate
 

The plugin does not exist yet. It will need to be written.

 

Please explain what you have in mind.

The bulk copying of Place name to Standardized name will achieve nothing on its own.

Each Standardized name will need to be adjusted to match a modern map name to be used for auto-geocoding.

That will require a manual edit of each Place record and that is when you can copy the Place name to the Standardized name.

So presumably you have some other bulk adjustment to Place names planned.

Please explain the problems you are hoping to resolve and we can suggest the best approach.
