Location configuration

Observations about the “location” parameters and how they interact with the PaperUI when configuring things. I’d appreciate any feedback if you have experience with this.

  1. It appears that the description attribute provided in the thing-types.xml file is never displayed:
<parameter name="location" type="text" required="true">
	<description>The latitude, longitude and optionally altitude, separated by commas (lat,long,[alt])</description>

  1. After entering a value, if the value is cleared, the map disappears instead of returning to the original default view
