Lightroom: Map Module Folder Display Needed

When in the Map Module, it would be great to be able to navigate by folder rather than just collections. To geo-tag my entire library, I am doing it folder by folder and it's a pain to have to go back to the Library Module to change the folder each time.

Ya know what I think we actually need, between this folder panel availability and the keyword panel issue posted earlier ( is for the map module to be combined with the library module.

Allow me to explain... When I'm geotagging images (which I love by the way, thanks Adobe) what I'm actually doing is editing metadata. I'm simply adding a text string (GPS coords.) to the existing metadata. It therefore makes a lot of sense to me to have the map function as an expandable 'pop-down' or similar to the metadata browser. Just like how the metadata browser expands down from the filter bar, the map view could drop down from the browser, replacing the grid. Then you would even have the metadata browser available if desired while tagging, as well as all the other Library features we love, like folders, keywords, etc. Then the map module as it currently exists could just disappear.

What do you all think of that idea?
