    • 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.

        • I am still downloading Oregon Aerials. I am on my 6 hour of downloading from the internet (with a 18Mbps connection). It would be very help

          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?

            • 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.

              • Map packs a pain..Need to be able to select tile by tile and/or at least by County.

                We need all of WV aerial and/or satellite imagery on hard drive in event of disaster (internet not available). In previous versions you could select individual image "tiles" to down load. You could then seamlessly scroll n/s/e/w. With Map Pack, to get the whole state, the select tool which then gives you half of all the surrounding states that we don't need. It won't load - to much data....It would be nice to be able to select the tiles by County to get the whole state. It would also be nice to have the aerial and/or satellite images on DVD/CD.…

                • Start-up Screen

                  It would be extremely helpful if when you open the program that you can set a home start location like on Google Earth, so you do not have to continually zoom in and try and locate your area every time.

                  Also, it would be very nice to actually view the USGS topos like before so we can read the map information of the sheet.

                  • Overlay semi-transparent quad with data onto a TNP map.

                    I work with the Oregon-Califonria Trails Association. I have scanned quads of the Gold Rush emigrant trails. If we could overlay a semi-transparent quad onto a TNP map and match the contour lines, we could transfer the data into TNP. Can an image file be an overlay and be maniuplated?

                        You can create a map containing any layer (including polygons) and Export it as a .TIF (or .JPG, or .PDF) by opening the File menu and choosing Print/Publish Maps.

                        That said, if you are looking to export the polygon as a GPX, KML/KMZ, Shapefile, or similar format, that is a different matter (and would be a different feature to request,)

                      • Please make USGS quadrangle grid lines available as an overlay - for topo or any other format

                        Quadrangle grid outlines aren't always self-evident even on USGS topo maps. Since my projects are constrained by these grid lines, it's important for me to readily see this grid regardless of the map format I'm in. It should be an overlay. I just spent an inordinate amount of time forcing the grid over my mapping area via point-to-point line drawing. It was t-o-r-t-u-r-e. Given these lines are readily available, this should be an easy thing to do.

                          If you need a layer that indicates boundary of the USGS topographic maps, set a custom grid (File, Preferences, Custom Grid) to have coordinate spacing of 0deg, 7min, 30 seconds. Then enable Custom Grid in View, Layer Size/Visibility. Note also that the current quad name is displayed in the TNP titlebar.

                          This also has the advantage of being visible, regardless of scale and map type.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.)

                                  • Scroll Bars

                                    Although while navigating around a map, dragging the little "hand" is usually sufficient, it would be great if one could move along the cardinal directions (N-S-E-W) by use of scroll bars. If one is extremely space conscious or doesn't ever need scroll bars, make it a preference that could be turned on or off

                                      The Compass Control Bar (on the left side of the map window) is not just a pretty decoration – it is live and active. Press the North arrow to pan the map North, South arrow to pan South, etc.

                                      Also, use the Page Up and Page Down keys to pan the map North and South. Shift+Page Up/Down pans East and West.

                                      Just purchased the Oregon parcel package and when working with it for a few days, found that the data was current only through 2011. When I looked at it on the website, indicated it was coverage updated through 2015. My bad for not realizing that meant what it said - coverage, not data - and that by clicking on a state you will get the last update for the data. But I think you should make it more upfront on how to access this information. Probably would not have purchased had I known this upfront.

                                        The Parcel Data purchase page indicates the approximate currency of the data. We may make this more prominent. Regardless, we receive and post data updates bi-annually. We have no way of predicting how long the various municipalities will update the ownership information, and when such updates will get processed by the data provider.

                                        That said, most data is very current – and was updated within the last 2-3 years.

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

                                          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.
