  1. 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.

    • Radius Tool or Tower Tool

      Add radio propagation model: Identify a point for a tower, its height above ground level, and how many miles it can transmit, then TNP shades the map to show you where signal can reach and where it can't. Alternatively: Locate a point, move any distance from that point, click to set your radius and then move the cursor in an arc to draw any portion of a circle from 5 degrees to 360 degrees. It would show the length in feet of the radius (i.e. length of pivot) and the acres within the circle or partial circle.

      • 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.

          • Provide capability to display both dog and gps receiver for Alpha 100-TT15

            Garmin sells the alpha 100. With this you can see the position of a canine in the field (sporting or search dog) by plugging the handheld into laptop and running basecamp software. I can plug my alpha in and see my location on TNP but I can't see the dog's location. We want the ability to see the location on TNP for several dogs in the field from a receiver in base. Would rather use TNP than have to switch to upgraded map products in their basecamp software.

            • 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.

              • Position Marker Text

                I would like flexibity in determining the placement of the marker text. Rather than use the label tool, I'd rather specify the quadrant the marker text is to be positioned, or better still, let me click and drag the text independently of the marker's position.

                  • 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.

                    • 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 USGS Standard Scales to Map Scale Drop-Down

                        Add the conventional USGS map scales (24,000, 50,000, etc.) to the drop-downs for viewing and printing.

                            • Increase the area/filesize of maps sent to GPS units to the maximum that the GPS can handle.

                              Increase the area/filesize of maps sent to GPS units to the maximum that the GPS can handle. The maximum size was decreased from version 10 to version 11 even though it was not hitting the limit of my GPS (Garmin Oregon 450).

                              • Leaf off aerial photos.

                                In addition to or in place of the leaf on aerial photos, color leaf off aerials would show so much more detail. For example streams, skid trails and field edges can all be seen with leaf off photos but they hide under the canopy of the trees.

                                      • More Line and Marker Symbol Styles

                                        You guys need more line styles. For example: double dashed lines (dirt road), double solid lines (road), alternating solid/hollow lines (abnd), barbwire fence x-x-x-, stone wall oooooo
