  1. Viewsheds (Line-of-Sight or Area-of-Sight) as an associated utility for TNP.

    The need for Viewsheds is rapidly increasing in the SAR world esp. for searches for cell phones, in addition to uses as in the suggestion "Radius Tool or Tower Tool" ). Even the simplest Line-of-Sight model that generates overlays would be valuable using the DEM already built-in to TNP (MTH). A utility that functions along with, but not yet fully integrated in, TNP (as TNP's FormatMXF.exe utility) should be relatively easy to include as a feature of TNP and would be a selling point for TNP.
    Better elevation data might be imported and used in the utility (e.g. GridFloat and…

    • Allow a Marker Name to be the Same as a GPS Name

      Have a check box that will automatically set the GPS name to the Marker name when uploading a marker

      • Keep Track/Marker/etc. dialog open when Find is pressed

        When I append one track to another, I need to know which end is the start and end of each track. The only way I can do that with 10.2 is to use the Find Start and Find End button located in Edit Track. However, once I click the Find Start or Find End button, the Edit Track box will disappear. It would be nice to not have the Edit Track dialog box disappear after the I click Find Start or Find End.

        • when editing polygon, please enable 'double-click-to-add-vertex-and-finish'

          this would be a bit quicker (and easier to train / easier to get people to remember) than going to the Finish button. After v9.5.

          • send polygon labels to GPS as waypoints; movable polygon labels

            allow polygon labels to be moved, and exported to GPS as markers; or, actually make a marker (automatically) that is the polygon label, with name but no symbol - currently we make markers with no symbols, named the same as the search segment track, and place them in a non-cluttered spot inside the segment (polygon), and export them to GPS along with the segment boundaries (closed loop tracks / polygons).

            • show secondary coords (as readonly) in Edit Marker and Info dialog boxes

              Often we need to get the exact coords of an already-drawn marker, in the secondary coord system. Right now to do this we have to change the primary coord system, since only the primary coord system shows up in the Edit Marker dialog box and the Information popup for a maker. Can you please add the display of the secondary coord system, grayed-out / read-only, to both of those displays?

              • Import Elevation data for viewing in 3D.

                I would like to be able to import data sets with 3D information. For example a .DXF (referenced to WGS84) with construction details of a large dam and be able to visualize these models with the 3-D viewer. Ideally the user could then elect which elevation model to pin the GPS location to, either the imported data or the underlying .mth or .evh. The pinning functionality would be a second priority in my opinion and could just default to one of the above options.

                    Please add support for L/L embedding in GeoTIF/World file rather than forcing State Plane. My GIS program requires L/L projection, not state plane.

                    • 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.

                                        • 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.
