Updating administrative data

  Vincent ran a script which updated all the administrative location information for caves on Grottocenter (country, region, etc.) And for several months this information has been determined automatically when you create a new entry or edit an entry by moving it significantly.   This makes the results of advanced searches much more complete and secure.
