Hoping for better facilities for geotagging. At lest change 2 fields to one field for latitudes, longitudes for faster copy paste. Automatic copy of latitudes, longitudes to identical addresses (maybe with manual accept).

Isn't that essentially what the Google Maps module does?
It keeps one central database with coordinates of all places, to avoid you ever need to enter them.

Note that the PLAC structure doesn't need to stop at the name of the town or village. You can go on with names of town quarters and street names.
I think the Google Maps module allows to enter coordinates for those extra levels as well.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.9

The GEDCOM Standard v5.5.1 uses two fields for mapping.

+1 MAP
+2 LATI <PLACE_LATITUDE>
+2 LONG <PLACE_LONGITUDE>

As Bert indicated I also use the Google Maps add on to support mapping and can go down to a street address or grave plot.

The problem is that you have two possibilities to add coordinates:

- manually on every event place (there is no automatism to add this coordinates to same places, but this coordinates will export via gedcom)

- use of Google Maps module (add coordinates one times for a place, but you can‘t export this lot of work via gedcom - only as csv).

I‘m waiting for a solution to add coordinates to a place one times and the coordinates will export in the gedcom file.

Yes I am very aware of this and as you point out it is on the radar of development.

However at this time Google Maps is the way webtrees displays mapping coordinates.

In a future release of webtrees this may be changed for use by round-trippers to other software.


EDIT:
Please note that this fix may not be as easy as you think. Entering the information for the first time maybe simple but some kind of data relationship will need to be maintained to allow for updates to ALL uses in all facts where the place resides when a change to the coordinates is required.

As noted in that issue, my Shared Places custom module fulfils these requirements. Instead of waiting, why not give it a try and see whether it works for you - I'm always open for suggestions for improvements.

Hi, I tried to test the custom modul but the installation of the hooks modul not works (Table doesn't exist):
/home/bauschaf/webtrees_ffp/app/Statement.php:82 SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'bauschaf_wts.wt_maj_hooks' doesn't exist #0 /app/Statement.php:82 PDOException("SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'bauschaf_wts.wt_maj_hooks' doesn't exist") #1 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Hook/HookProvider.php:130 execute() #2 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Hook/HookProvider.php:142 getRawInstalledHooks() #3 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Hook/HookProvider.php:156 getInstalledHooks() #4 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Module/Hooks/AdminConfigController.php:93 updateHooks() #5 unknown:unknown index() #6 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Mvc/Dispatcher.php:73 call_user_func_array([array], [array]) #7 /modules_v3/hooks_repackaged/Module/HooksModule.php:51 handle([HooksModulX], 'AdminConfig') #8 /module.php:26 modAction('AdminConfig')

The error message I received with PHP 7.0. With PHP 7.1 or 7.2 I have a blank page only ...

That's weird, the error occurs in HooksModule.php line 51, where immediately before the table should have been created, if necessary (via "Database::updateSchema").
Are there any other errors in your php log file, or is there an error 'flash message' on top of the module administration?
Is the database user not allowed to create additional tables (unlikely, I guess)?
This is webtrees 1.7.9 or .10?

Can you check your database table 'wt_site_setting': Is there an entry for "MAJ_HOOKS_SCHEMA_VERSION"?
If there is, and it is on "1", reset it to "0", or delete the row altogether and check if that helps.

Edit: Resetting "MAJ_HOOKS_SCHEMA_VERSION" solved this issue - The entry was created by a previous activation of this module. I'll make the respective check more robust.
