Geocoding service has been stopped

Geocoding is the process of determining the longitude and latitude of places. Family Historian will normally automatically geocode places that haven't already been geocoded, when you open the Map Window. However the geocoding service has been stopped temporarily. This may have happened because of service problems or because of excessive use. Family Historian will automatically re-try the geocoding service the next time you run the program, if geocoding is still needed.

Geocoding has been disabled

Geocoding is the process of determining the longitude and latitude of places. Family Historian will normally automatically geocode places that haven't already been geocoded, when you open the Map Window. However automatic geocoding has been disabled. This is because the service was unable to geocode an excessively large number of the places recorded in your project, suggesting that other information (not place names) may have been recorded in place fields.

Before re-enabling automatic geocoding (in Preferences, 'Map Window' tab), please check all Place records and ensure that place fields have been used correctly to store place names. Place names typically contain comma-separated parts, such as 'Orlando, Florida, United States'.
