#13581 closed Cleanup/optimization (wontfix)

improve naming of default coordinates for GeoModelAdmin¶

Reported by: tylere Owned by: nobody
Component: GIS Version: 1.1
Severity: Normal Keywords: GeoModelAdmin
Cc: Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The GeoModelAdmin class currently has properties of default_lon and default_lat. While these are reasonable names when using an unprojected coordinate system, they are misleading if a subclass with another projection is used (such as the spherical mercator projection used by the class OSMGeoAdmin). This may lead to confused users, for example:

I would suggest changing the default coordinate names to default_x and default_y.

This isn't obviously worth the backwards incompatibility.
