Geo tags: paths and lines, not polygons and bounding boxes

We use paths for rivers. To make a path, or line, appear on Google Maps you need to override the code that automatically coverts multiple (not single, of course) <geo> coordinates to polygons.

To do this, you need to add a type="path" attribute to the <location> tag, as follows: <location type="path">.
