  1. 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.

    • Support for PDFMaps

      We use TNP for Search and Rescue operations. As such, we rely on it for saving lives. We have found however that no software has decent maps for "non-public" roads. We have found the most useful maps via the Avenza Maps software but it's only available for iOS and Android, not Windows. We need the ability to work with geo-ref PDF maps from sources like Oregon Dept of Forestry. These maps are much more complete as they're used by ODF to fight range / forest fires. Sadly, there is no support for these types of maps in TNP. As such,…

          You can already use whatever you want as a marker symbol, if it is available as a Font on your system. There are lots of font libraries available for download that contain every type of symbol imaginable. However, it would still be nice to use a bitmap as a symbol in TNP, which we will consider as we continue to revise and improve the software.

        • 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.

            • TNP proxy awareness

              Please make future versions of TNP "proxy aware". This means that any component of TNP that needs access to the TNP website would automatically try to go through the current proxy before trying to go directly to the web. This would be very helpful at larger organizations with strict firewalls that would normally block TNP from accessing the web unless it goes through the proxy. Thank you.

                  • Split Imported Line Overlays

                    Split imported line overlays into separate sub-layers so that portions of the drawing can be shown/hidden (as opposed to showing/hiding the entire drawing overlay.)

                      • 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.

                        • I would like to open and change multiple projects at one time to create a master project

                          I have multiple projects scattered over a large area and its hard to remember where they all are so it would be nice to have the availability to open multiple projects then zoom in on the one you want to work on first then move to the next one.

                              • 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.

                                • Add easy Internet access on/off toggle

                                  Easy Internet Access On/Off Switch - with a default that can be set by the user. I have experienced repetitive difficulties starting this program due to poor internet access, and would like to be able to set a default start to the maps I already have stored on my computer, for instance the 1:24,000 USGS topographical maps. Then, when I find the area I am working on, I could click the easy switch (rather than a setting buried three layers deep in the menu) to allow it to load aerials, if I so choose.

                                  • Be able to print, edit, and save multi-sheet drawings.

                                    Currently in TNP, to print a multi-sheet drawing, such as along a utility line, one would have to position the border template on a section of the line, take a snapshot, and then scroll to the next section. This method would not easily be reproduced, and would take considerable time when having to edit a section print.

                                        • Make a "default print scale" preference

                                          This would let you avoid having to remember to set the scale every time you want to print if you consistently use 1 scale. You would still be able to change the scale during the print function if desired.
