Initial Questions:

Project/Feature Name: True geolocation fields in Mozillians
Tracking  ID:920651
Description:
Mozillians.org currently stores location data in user profiles in strings. This means we can't do some of the most interesting, most requested things that geographic data allows. For example, we can't really plot Mozillians on a map, or produce accurate metrics, since all we have is a bunch of string data.

In particular, we might have people living in any/all of these places:
Newyork
New York City
NYC
NY City
etc.

This project will simply replace those string fields with true geographic data fields, which will normalize the data and make possible some features that users have long requested (like being able to indicate on a map that all of those people live in the same place).

The only reason I'm filing this bug is to alert the privacy team to this change and field any questions they have.
