Feeds : importing geolocation

For some reason the geolocation field does not show up as a field that can be imported. It requires an additional field importer to make the geo latitude and longitude fields become available.

The additional importer comes from #5 in this post

Simply place the file in the feeds/mappers/ directory.

An important lesson learned here: If the geo fields are mapped on an importer, the import will fail if the geo fields have no data or are empty.

My recommendation is, do the import with geo fields mapped first. That will bring in any of the geo data. Then remove the geofields from the mapper and run the import again. This will bring in all the items missing geo and will not alter the others in the process.
