Configuring The Master Genealogist to link to UK maps

Start up TMG and open up the Master Place List. Then it helps, but is not essential, to select a place that has a lat/lon defined for it. Then click the Place Mapping icon near the top right of that window. That brings up a Place Mapping window wher you can select which online maps to use. Click the Configure button which gives you a screen to edit the plaemap.ini file. Insert the following lines to add a new Genuki site:-
Name="Genuki map links using Lat/Long"
Description="Find a map via Genuki  using the latitude & longitude."
Condition="NOT EMPTY([latlong])"
URL="/cgi-bin/maplink?LAT=[latitude],LON=[longitude],PLACE=[feature] [city] [county] [state]"

This tells it to call the Genuki maplink script with the latitude and longitude as parameters. This gives a screen with links to a whole range of online UK maps centred on that location.
