Places provide a means of adding maps to your content. Having an event in a specific campus building? Save the plot location when you add your event, and it will be available the next time you need to map to the same building.
Places are data points that represent geographical locations. Many different content types allow you to plot locations on a map. When doing so, you can either choose an existing place, or create a new one that you can save to “Places”. In this way you can build your repository of saved places as you work.
Of course you can also add and mangage places through the “Places” management tool. A link to this tool exists on the back-end under the “Libraries” navigation menu.
LiveWhale Admins can create global places that are visibile to users of all groups.
