This {{icon|geog}}[[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Geography_Category|Geography Category]] addon view mode plots tagged pins on a Map at the Places associated with Ancestors of the [[Gramps_Glossary#home_person|Home Person]].
'''Ancestors Map''' is an interactive {{icon|ance}} {{man label|Geography}} category view addon that overlays pins for certain known Places on downloaded Map tiles.
== Usage ==
Change Navigate the designated [[Gramps_Glossary#home_personactive_person|Home Active Person]] selection before changing to the [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Geography_Category|Geography]] Category view to map the Event Places associated with a different Person's Ancestors.  An interaction in the 1.0.3 version of the Add-on with the Relationship view may cause the Map to fail to focus on a new Active Person. Use the Person View or Bookmarks to navigate this selection to a different person.
There are 4 pin types:<br>
<small>''Still looking for correct pins. The maps us This map use left-handed versions of the normally right-handed magnifying glass.''</small>
Right-click on a map pin to reveal a pop-up menu listing the Events & People at that Place.
==&#x2699; Configuration Options==
[[File:ConfigureGeography-the-map-tab-50.png|right|thumb|450px|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Configure Geography - "The map" tab]]The Ancestors Map has the standard [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#The_configuration|Map configuration]] options.
See the Geography view [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Usage|introduction to using maps]].
== Troubleshooting ==
Places of Ancestor Events that do not appear as pins on the map are probably missing the correct GPS longitude and/or longitude. Determining which Places are missing and need correction can be finicky work. This is most easily done with custom filters... but it takes multiple stages. The objective is to find the Places of Events of Ancestors of the [[Gramps_Glossary#home_person|Home Person]]. That's 4 stages of filtering. You can set up a [[Example_filters|multi-stage of filter ]] that show shows only Places for Ancestors & [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#.E2.9A.99_Configuration_Options|configure the Places Category view ]] to show the Longitude & Latitudecolumns. This will tell you how many of Ancestor related Places will be omitted from being plotted on the map plotted.
For this multi-stage custom filter, create the following Cascade of custom filters:
# Create a Person custom Filter "ActivePerson" using the "Active Person" add-on Person General rule. (New incredibly useful add-on Rule. It makes Filters MUCH more dynamic. Thanks Paul!)# Person custom Filter "ActiveAncestors" using [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Ancestral_filters|Ancestral filter ]] "Ancestors of <filter> match"; filter=ActivePerson {<br>''You might add a 2nd rule to include the Active person where Person and then select the "[[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Define_Filter_dialog#multiple_rule_options|At least one rule must apply]]"option. Otherwise, the Events & Places of the Active Person might be omitted}''# Places Events custom Filter "ActiveAncestorEvents" using [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Events_Category_2|Events General filter ]] "Events of persons matching the <person filter>"; person filter=ActiveAncestors# Places custom Filter "ActiveAncestorEventPlaces" using [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Places_Category_2|Places General filter ]] "Places of events matching the <event filter>"; event filter=ActiveAncestorEvents {{man tip| 1=Making Filters that are more reusable|2=You could built this using a Person custom filter set to the built-in Default Person (a.k.a. [[Gramps_Glossary#home_person|Home Person]]) General rule. That would more directly correspond to this add-on Geography view mode.<br><br>But a custom Filter using the "Active Person" add-on Person General rule is much more flexible. It stays synchronized to the Person being edited instead of continually resetting the Home Person designation or editting a rule that had been preset to a specific PersonID.<br><br>'' Download and use the incredibly useful add-on Person General Rule that was created in early 2020. It replaces the awkward PersonID based rules and makes Custom Filters MUCH more dynamic. Thanks Paul!''}}

Paste the raw '''[[:Category:Tutorials|Tutorials]]''' outline for the '''[[:Category:How_do_I...|How Do I...]]''' article above the '''See also''' section. This might start with pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists.
Saving this file as a 'work in progress' will insert the code behind this reference template. (Preview only show the results, not the markup formatting control.) You can use the appended special formatting example template to pre-populate a virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard. Snip pieces to paste special formatting to enhance the outline.
Adding a ''feature documentation'' link pointing to the introduction of the interface element in the wiki will relieve you of the burden explaining how to find the feature.
Finding a ''[[Gramps_Glossary|Gramps Glossary]] term'' to link may be easier than choosing the best introductory section in the wiki. Glossary entries have a brief description and may already have the introductory text and practical tutorial linked.
Since most of these ''How do I...'' tutorials are likely to have been prompted by a MailList discussion, a set of example 'See also' link are included for reference.
Pointing the ''maillist archived thread'' link to the original message that inspired the tutorial give proper credit for the idea &amp; reveals the background discussion.
Pointing another link to a good search phrase for the archive allows similar discussions to be explored.
Once the tutorial Preview is satisfactory, save a revision of the document. Then clean out the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard cluttering up your tutorial and save a final revision.
To remove the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard, simply delete everything from the beginning of this section to the bottom of the document. It is all disposable.
If the Copy&amp;Paste clipboard is needed again, simply paste the following line at the end of the Edit box, Save a revision, &amp; edit again.(Previewing isn't enough... a revision must be saved.)

Other wiki [[:Category:Templates|Templates]] can be used as virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboards in the same way.
