# store latitude and longitude in separate fields in map interface

### :+1: = 1

It would be cool to have an option that the geo-coordinates of the map interface could be stored in two different columns with FLOAT-type. The current implementation stores it as a single string with a "," to separate lat and lng. I want to show a map with markers in the frontend and don't want to split it everytime. Besides I want to filter the rows based on the current map bounds so I need to compare the lat and lng with them.
