  1. Near IR aerial photography layer

    Natural Resource Managers would see a huge benefit to having near IR aerial photos to compare to regular aerial photographs in order to determine where stands dominated more by conifers differ from deciduos dominated stands.

  2. I would like the ability to have a label point to more than one feature (e.g. >1 marker)

    I often need to have a label point to multiple features, such as one label point to two or more markers. Would be great to have this capability to clean up the project.

  3. Plot/Grid system overlay within a boundary

    I would like to be able to enter a point/plot or grid system within a boundary of property tract for cruising timber. Be able to place a certain systematic plot system as an overlay without having to manually insert the markers. For instance, place markers every 300 feet by 300 feet throughout the tract.

  4. Add 1 inch = ____ feet scale check box option to the preformatted scale box that includes the scale bars and ratio scale checkbox option

    Where I was thinking would be handy is to have that scale-type option be included in the scale block that the software already has formatted, which currently contains a check box option to include the ratio scale and choices of bar scales. That check box would need a drop down menu of choices of 1 inch = ___ meters, etc to address the possible broad base of customer needs.

  6. After cutting a existing polygon, be able to create a new and separate polygon from it.

    Once you cut an new polygon, it uses the same name as the one you just cut. Want to create a new and separate polygon

    When a polygon is cut, TNP already creates two separate polygons from the original. However, both polygons do share the same name (that of the original polygon.)

    For example, if you have a Polygon named “My Property”, splitting that polygon will result in two new polygons, both named “My Property”.

    We welcome specific suggestions as to how name the two new polygons. Should they be “My Property (1)” and “My Property (2)”? Should one stay named “My Property” and the other named something else (such as “My Property (2)” or whatever the default polygon name is? Or discard the existing name altogether?

  7. grid cross

    When printing maps, it would be great to be able to print just the gridline crosshairs where two gridlines would meet rather than the full gridlines. This reducing the number of possibly distracting lines on the map, but also provides users with access to the gridline locations (important for utm plotting, for example)

  8. Allow selection of both Name and Area (Total) as the Label in the Fill Area of a polygon.

    I would like to be able to show more than one parameter as the Label in the Polygon Fill Area, specifically, I'd like to be able to choose both Name and Area (Total)

  9. Allow Pointer color to be changed

    It would be beneficial to be able to change the Map Pointer to a different color than white. Many times it is difficult to see where the pointer is because of a large amount of white in the map. If we could have the ability to change the pointer color it would be much easier to see.

  10. As a Forester Making maps

    I signed up for the free trial.
    The fact that you have a mapping program on Mac is excellent.
    The layers and map types are great.
    I exported and uploaded my gpx files in record time.
    However the tools drop down list is limited for my needs...
    I need to make maps with different color schemes for boundary lines, trails, stand type, etc.
    Also need a legend to identify stands and other features. Being able to insert text box, and free draw is necessary for timber sale maps, and management plan maps too.
    Otherwise this program is awesome, i'm hopeful…

    Good news.
    We are working on a whole Timber Cruise module that will connect the PC desktop’s powerful set of mapping tools with the TNP Mobile app for data collection. Tracts and Stands will be easily created on the PC desktop, with customized cruise grids and collection parameters. Then the mobile app will be used to collect the data, and transmitted back to the desktop for processing. Look for this new add-on for TNP in 2019.

  11. Symbol size option in print menu

    When adding a symbol in a printed map legend, provide the editing option of increasing the symbol size.

  12. Allow user to set order/hierarchy of overlays

    If you have more than one layer that occupy the same space, there is no way for the user to set which one appears on top of the other. TNP makes this choice for you, which can create a layer to be hidden under another when you want it visible. For example I have a shapefile for every trail in my state, and others for specific trails (ski, snowmobile, etc.) which I want to be able to choose to be layered on top of (thereby visible) the generic trail layer.

  13. Be able to apply a template to existing objects like markers, tracks and polygons

    I know you can create templates in Preferences for new objects like markers, tracks, and polygons but I'd like to be able to apply that template to existing objects to keep them consistent across multiple projects.

  14. Add rods to length units distance

    A rod (16.5 feet) is a unit of land measurement common in old deed records here in the north east.

  15. Provide ability to use What3Words coordinates

    What3Words at https://what3words.com/ is being used by several countries and delivery companies to provide an exact (10x10m) location for directions when normal addresses don't work well. I see this as an awesome, easy to use alternative to USNG and would like to see it supported in TNP, if possible.

    For example, if I gave you this address: https://w3w.co/fixed.defends.overhaul
    you would know to go to the front door of my work location instead of to the rear parking deck door. This coordinate system is getting more popular each day, especially for rural or highly congested locations.

  16. Provide the same color palette for labels as that available for polygons.

    I would like to see the color palette for labels be expanded to match that provided for polygons. Would be great to have color selection for tracks match as well.

  19. Parcel Grouping

    We'd like to see a feature where you can group contiguous parcels and then draw a single polygon for the group as well as to pull up parcel information relative to the entire group.

  20. Date of Satellite/Aerial Photos

    We used to be able to access acquisition dates of aerial photos through the "information" link on the photo; that now seems to be lost in TNP 11 (and there seems to be no way to determine when the satellite photos were taken - not even the year). In my work it is important to be able to reference the date of the photo - any way to provide that information again?

    The Aerial OrthoPhoto map type retains the ability to indicate the date (year) of the photo. In fact, each year available is listed as a Map Edition.

    Unfortunately, the data provider for the higher resolution Satellite Imagery does not indicate the date of that image to us. Perhaps they will add this ability to their service in the future – at which time we can consider adding it to TNP.
