I think I have learned how to use Geography view so the issue is
mine and not GRAMPS. I added the lat and long for a place and, ta
dah, Geography View is now usable.
There is a tool in the addons that can search downloaded geography files, placecompletion tool. It is a bit complicated however, but if you have many places, setting it up and having all your places added automatically with lat/lon is a big plus.
For few places, better add lat/lon manually, eg via geography view.

view displays many places and most are associated with
persons. I understand that I need coordinates but do not know how
to add them.
Is this done through the context menu option: Quick View or Look
Up With Map Service? The second option brings up Google Maps for
the selected place. So at this point I assume I am to find the
coordinates but how?
This is why I am confused as to why it is not working.

You have no places.
You have no active person set.
I think the answer is in the above lines. Verify you have at
most one place with coordinates then choose the geoview places
You should see the map and this place.
The controls and input box at the top of the view are grayed
If you have no places, this is a normal situation.
