Place database used by Gramps
If you want to use your own database, you don't care of licence to use, but what about to re-use existing databases ? See Copyrights.
To create our place database
Why not creating our own place database ? Users sharing place information. It is possible on Gramps 3.0.1 and later :
- Go on place View
- Edit menu -> Column editor
- Check Place Name, Zip, City, County, Country, Latitude, Longitude, Church Parish columns
- go on Family Trees menu -> Export View ...

To use existing place structure and data into Gramps
To re-use your data stored in an other flat database
- having a place database (txt, csv, xml, bd etc ...) which could be used on open-sources projects (licence)
- to import data into gnumeric (save data on XML gnumeric)
- to assign one format per column (font size="8" for the first column, font size="10" for the second, etc ...)
- to order by name
- to create a new column (1 on the first line, 2 on the second, 3 on the third) then to use automatic filing from the first line to the last one with data.
- to save on XHTML
- to work with "replace" function on your text editor (or grep, sed, awk)
ex: if you don't use autofiling for number, (<xsl:number value="postion()" format="1."/>) generates ordered id for your place object.
