  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. 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.

  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Add ability to edit Polygon text Style/Font

    When using the Polygon tool the automated text values are perfect for labeling search segments. However, we run into the issue of the tiny black numbers being difficult to see on printed aerial maps. We would like the ability to edit the Style of the text in order to, at minimum, change the size and color.

    Right now we workaround the issue by using Labels, but this carries its own problems and can be cumbersome.

  10. Public Lands Overlay

    In states which have large amounts of public land it would be useful if TNP had overlays of public lands such as National Parks, Monuments, Forests, etc. The various overlays in the now discontinued Trimble Outdoors maps were excellent.

  11. More label choices

    Please provide more format choices for labels. The little speech bubble shape looks very unprofessional, and the simple square/circle shapes have no pointers (adding lines to the squares/circles is possible but cumbersome).

  13. Allow track and route names/numbers to be displayed on screen as markers are.

    Currently you can't have track names on-screen. Names, trail numbers, etc., are very useful for our SAR unit. Having such a feature would save us time in preparing mission maps.

  14. Make polygons exportable like other objects: Markers, etc.

    We use TNP extensively for our search and rescue team and have just started using polygons to identify search areas and separate projects for each operational period that the search lasts. If I could export polygons exclusively, I could easily build the basis for the next operational period and add polygons to extend our search area.

  16. Modify polygons

    Be able to modify a polygon from say 40 acres to 25 acres. Click on a line segment and drag it to new connecting point to close new polygon with new information.

  17. Be Able to Start A New Line At or On an Existing Line or Object

    Currently, new lines have to be started a short distance away from any existing lines or features. This causes a glitch in the professionalism of maps because there are "stub outs" that have no purpose and always raise questions by map recipients.

  18. snapping during data entry

    simple snapping feature: hold down the shift button while drawing a distance line, track, route, marker, etc to snap to the nearest segment or vertex of a distance line, track, route, marker, etc

    Part of this feature will be included in version 12 of TNP. Specifically, snapping of polygon vertices during placement and movement will occur automatically. This will address the concerns raised by garretprice.

    Snapping of unlike layer types (markers to a track) or other layers of the same type (waypoint in “Route 1” snapped to waypoint in “Route 2”) are beyond the scope of version 12.

  19. Edit more than one item at a time

    When editing layers (such as markers, routes, tracks, etc.) I want multi-selection options so that I can change colors, styles, fonts, and delete all at once.

  20. 'favorites' or 'recent' in list of GPS types

    our team goes back and forth between garmin 60 csx usb and garmin 62s usb almost exclusively. There are 2 or 3 others (etrex, rino, 76csx usb, etc) that we use now and then as needed. Can you add a 'favorites' or 'recently used' at the top of the listbox of gps types, to save the time of having to scroll thru the list each time?
