Family tree mapping is the process of geocoding places in family tree files to produce geospatial data suitable for viewing with a virtual globe or 2D mapping program.


The availability of several free applications for viewing geographic data has led to a growing interest in the use of this technology by genealogists and family history researchers.

The ability to share keyhole markup language (KML) files through sites such as Google Maps means that researchers can find matches based on geographic location rather than just a place name.
