Maxmind has announced that they will remove coordinates from GeoLite2 in 2019.

How can Piwik works without the coordinates? Must we subscribe to the commercial GeoIP2? Can we use IP2Location LITE DB5?

Why you need coordinates? City should be precise enough for 99% of the users that don't use a commercial solution anyway.

I'm not sure if Piwik uses the coordinates to display the cities on the map.

Well, the map works if you use other methods of geolocation instead of GeoLite DB. So there should be no problem with that?

Need to check the codes if latitude and longitude are being used. Any developers here?
