Purpose of the Mod
To help administrators
- Set the Place Level field in the place level database,
- Copy Place Levels and Geocodes from one database to another (particularly from a production database to a test databasee)
by creating four utilities available through tabs on the Administrative >> Places menu.
Setting Place Levels
The Place Level field in the Places database indicates the specificity of the place name; e.g.
Placelevel = 0 for Unknown or undefined level
Placelevel = 1 for Address
Placelevel = 2 for Location (a facility, cemetery, or other location within a town or county), e.g. Laurel Land Cemetery, Dallas, Dallas, Texas, USA.
Placelevel = 3 for City/Town, e.g. Houston, Harris, Texas, USA, or Houston, Texas.
Placelevel = 4 for County/Shire, e.g. Harris County, Texas.
Placelevel = 5 for State/Province, e.g. Texas (and see notes for "pseudo-states" below)
Placelevel = 6 for Country, e.g. USA or America or Germany.
This mod only can compute the placelevel for USA places and other country names (but not places within other countries). To compute a placelevel, this mod uses several Place Format Options, which are described in detail in the Place Utilities Help File.
