    • Add public and private land overlay

      I would like to see a way to show various forms of public/private land on my map display on the TNP desktop.

        • Please return to non seamless maps

          I just installed version 11.0. I am not happy that all the maps are seamless now. I work with individual 7.5 minute topo maps and need to know their respective boundaries. I will be uninstalling this version so I can go back to the old system. Also, upon exiting the program should retain the last project you were working on. It is really annoying that one has to re-enter the project each time you log in.

          • Use my own Base maps

            Instead of using the USGS topos and Aerial photos, I would like to import my own maps.

            • Add contours to aerial photos

              Contours could be calculated (easily) by TNP as SHP from existing (or future updated higher res.) DEM (MTH) files and made available (perhaps by quad or 1/4-quad) as overlays that can be added to a Project and displayed and printed on aerials, with all the flexibility of overlay display. (Alternatively, the contours might be calculated dynamically.)

                • Polygons

                  You should make a true Polygon tool that includes the ability to copy/paste/move entire polygon (without altering shape.)

                    When drawing distance lines the bearing reads in 360 degree azimuths. It would be very helpful in plotting deeds to be able to draw distance lines with quadrant bearings such as south 72 degrees east. Otherwise we have to convert azimuth bearings to quadrant bearings before drawing.

                    • Support Michigan GeoRef coordinate system

                      The State of Michigan distributes their spatial data using the Michigan GeoRef coordinate system. It would be very helpful to be able to view the many publicly-available shape files from the Michigan Center for Geographic Information as a layer in TNP. Presently, TNP does not support Michigan GeoRef coordinates, which makes these files incompatible with TNP.

                      • Enterprise Edition of the Mobile App

                        Absoutely needed to make this app useful for SAR work. Limiting the number of mobile phone to 1 or 5 or even 10, precludes its use for team operations. Even if you have to charge a modest fee (.99 to 2.99) for each app beyond a certain number (5?), we can't limit the number of devices.

                          I am still downloading Oregon Aerials. I am on my 6th hour of downloading from the internet (with a 18Mbps connection). It would be very helpful, in future versions of TNP if there was an indicator of progress in the Downloading from the internet pop up window such as: downloading 13 of 2066 files --- downloading 266 of 2066 files etc.

                          It would also be very helpful if there was a way to get the aerials via DVD or SD card or USB so they load to a local drive much faster than occurs by downloading over the internet?

                          • I would like to be able to scan a paper trail map and use it as a layer in TNP

                            Many parks have campsite and trail maps in paper format. I would like to be able to scan the paper map into a digital format such as a PDF or JPEG and overlay it as a semi transparent layer over a topo map in TNP so that the local trail and campsite information appears on the topo map. I often do not have access to a geocoded TIFF file and would like to simply overlay the map and manipulate it into position using a layer.

                            • Error message: Map file is corrupt, cannot load.

                              I'm printing a 68"x68" map using TNP 10.2. Resolution is 50 dpi. I first start off with map type at 1:24k topo and it rendered on the screen. Then I switch to a map type of 1:12k and it too rendered on the screen. Next I kept the map type at 1:12k and switch scale to 1:24k. That also rendered on screen. I then switch scale to 1:48k and got the error message. Attached are screen captures when the error was received and what it looked like after I clicked OK in the error message box.

                                I use Range Rings to delineate center pivots on maps. Would be very useful to be able to use the Fill/Loop function to place a grid in the ring in the same way as a looped track/route.

                                    • Exporting Photos and Quad by "Current View"

                                      When exporting the Photos and Quads it would be more efficient if a user could pick the "current view" rather than trying to pick the same view they are looking at in the small overall window.

                                      • I need a simple printout for each of my projects of a. route coordinates, b. marker coordinates. These are for permnanent report records.

                                        Allow a simple printout of a. route coordinates, b. marker coordinates. Is this possible with TNP now?

                                        • Find for lakes and streams

                                          The new version appears to list duplicate lakes and streams based on elevation. This is not helpful In Minnesota with 10,000 plus lakes and thousands of streams. The old version based on nearest town for duplicate names was much more useful. The new version also does not find lakes as well as the old version.
