Cemeteries without a Province should no longer be an issue. This was caused by the 'add new cemetery' option not pulling geo data directly from the database. This was one of a few locations on the site that still use hard coded information. This particular one has been updated and now pulls information directly and forces you to select a Province before a town. The Cemetery Search page is also one that is currently hard coded, but will also be updated but there is no ETA for it.
There is a Province Breakdown Proposal
in the Help Forum. This is the current planned structure to break down the Provinces into "County" level equivalents.
The current issue with Photo Requests include:
1. Currently only allows US requests
2. Currently based on US Zip Codes and GPS of the cemetery or County the cemetery is located
3. Geo Database only includes GPS for towns and Counties. Thus countries without a county level equivalent can not make the calculation. The distance from the centroid of the Zip to the GPS of the cemetery can make for interesting distance calculations when you are not near the centroid of the Zip.
Eventually, the plan is to move away from the Zip Code and into selecting your location via a map similiar to when adding GPS to a cemetery. Or possibly using the geolocation feature built into HTML5. Geolocation is highly accurate when using wireless connections, but not so much when using wired connections. Picking your location via a map or wireless geolocation increases the distance calculation, although the calculation is still as the bird flies.
The following countries are prepped for an update to county level equivalents: France, Italy, and Lithuania. However, this can not happen until the final portion of the State level equivalents is cleaned up. See Geography Updates
for more information. 234 countries will have State level equivalents and 150 countries will have County level equivalents.
There are currently 5902 place names in Canada, all of which will need to be assigned to a county level equivalent.
