When mapping an item for the first time after adding a Map block to a page, one is given a default Mercator world map and must either zoom and pan into one’s location or click search and land at a selected address from the geocoder.
I would like for my users to land at a particular place first (the city which we are documenting) and then find their location when mapping items, and not always start with the world map, as it is repetitive to always zoom into the same basic location to begin mapping.
I imagine most Omeka S users who are mapping – unless their datasets encompass the entire globe – their items would all have some geographic focus, i.e. ancient India or frontier America and not the whole world.
This global option is configurable in the Omeka Classic Geolocation plugin and would be a great addition to the Omeka S module, which has no configuration options at present. @jimsafley Is there a way to define this in the module code? I don’t mind if it affects all my sites in my Omeka S instance. Thanks!.
