I fully agree with the sentiment here and concede being different is probably not the best reason to do something. I don’t want to prolong the discussion, but thought I should put my request in context:
One of the problems that I’ve seen with almost all work management software and services (at least the ones I’ve tried like todoist, Monday.com, wrike, coda, etc.) that are currently available is that they are primarily geared towards software development, marketing, communication, etc. which often do not have a basis in the real/physical world. That is what makes them very difficult to use for anyone working in fields whose work involves something physical (AEC, real estate, asset and facility management, heritage conservation, governments, etc.). At some point we will need to record information about locations and physical features and that is when you are forced to use a different tool. Examples of this are location of all ongoing projects, available listings, outstanding work orders, boundary of properties, location of all assets you need to manage (e.g. light poles, benches, streets).
I know ESRI’s complete dominance of the geospatial field discourages most companies from even considering entering this area and there are specialized software for all the fields I discussed above. But one of the selling points for fibery is that you can build your own tool and grow your process without having to spend huge amounts on software/system acquisition up front. However, without a way of attaching some of the records to the real world, the tools I am making would be incomplete. I think the investment to support storage and representation of geospatial data is no longer as daunting as it was before with standard libraries and universal database support. I do agree that most companies at this point will not be able to compete with the likes of ESRI on geospatial analysis, so we will have to live with using those tools when the need arises. But for basic level of data, it would be nice to have an all in one tool.
One final thought: if you are considering adding this as a feature, please consider going the full way and adding all geometry types. Monday.com supports single points (for some reason, insist on geocoding rather than also allowing just inputting/importing coordinates) but that will quickly become a barrier if you need to associate multiple points or a boundary.
I really appreciate the interest in this topic from everyone. If anyone has ideas on other systems that would work well as a workaround for now, I would be very interested to hear about them.
