  1. Add ability to change default label "pointer" position

    We label our search segments on the map itself, but the polygon's Name text is too small and not the color we desire. As a workaround we use the Label tool, creating a Label of our desired font that has no background. That is all Defaultable, but the catch is we then have to reposition each label to prevent the numbers from "scattering" out of their search segments when the zoom level changes.

    By this I mean, every time we place a Label, we must then either move the label text box over the pointer (and resize it to its…

  2. rotate polygons

    Add the ability to rotate a polygon. For example, if you have a footprint (building pad for example) and you what to try to see how it fits on the ground, being able to rotate (as well as drag as we currently can do) would be very helpful

  3. Recognize Magenta and DarkMagenta colors when Importing Tracks

    Description:
    Various colors can be assigned to Tracks in TNP. These are intended to be universal colors, so they work in BaseCamp and Google Earth as well (this is awesome) upon Export. However, I've noticed that TNP does not properly Import Magenta and DarkMagenta. It defaults to Red, which I assume is the default Track color, instead of being the assigned color like all the other colors.

    Repro:
    1. Open attached TNP Export.gpx in BaseCamp and acknowledge multiple Tracks of various colors to show intended function in addition to Magenta and Dark Magenta.
    2. Open that same file in TNP,…

  4. Include USGS 1:24000 Quad name with every Find Placename Match

    A Find Placename search may result in a long list of matches esp. if the keyword is common. The associated Quad names may be very useful in filtering for the desired Match. Sometimes TNP includes the Quad name with a match, sometimes not, even with identical match names. Suggestion: Include the Quad name for every Match. (If the quad name is always included, I can ignore it, but I cannot include the name as part of the filtering if it is not given.)
    The Nearest 15 is also a useful filter; the GNIS Category is often more entertaining than useful.

  5. Visible (with single-click) listing of Layer Type Show/Hide status

    Here is an alternate proposal that avoids the need to modify the Compass Bar or GUI as suggested in "layer display palette on the left sidebar". The idea here is to give an easy frequent view of the Show/Hide status of often-edited Layer Types with a single click and should be possible to implement without needing a major redesign of the GUI: Simply have the Layer Types in the Layers dropdown grayed-out if Hidden. Then every click on the Layers button offers a quick, intuitive, unobtrusive reminder of the Show/Hide status for these frequently-used Layer Types.

    This proposal does not…

  6. Layer Stacking Order in display

    On any display with layers, have a "right-click" option to change stacking order, moving the selected item towards the front or rear in the display, that is, to change which item is hidden by what. Options might be to change order within a Layer type, or among all Layer types, or of Layer types as a group (now seems to be Overlays under Routes under Tracks …).

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  14. Being able to put miltiple buffer strips around a stream.

    I would like to be able to put buffer widths around water bodies (lakes, streams, wetlands) and calculate the acreage. This is required on some forest practices rules in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, some states have multiple buffers, for example, Washington has three, an inner core of 30 feet, a middle buffer of 45 feet, and an outer buffer of 25 feet. Tree harvest regulations differ for each buffer.

  15. Different colors of tracks/markers/etc. for aerials vs topos.

    Add a feature to automatically toggle between different colors of tracks, markers, etc. for aerials vs. topo maps, like is currently available for Grid Lines. For example, white markers show up well on aerials, but not so well on topos.

    This can already be done using a few steps, rather than a direct link:
    1. Use the selection tool to group your markers.
    2. Right-click on the selection boundary line (or center node) and choose Export Markers/Routes/Tracks within selection.
    3. Save the KML file, import the KML into Google Earth.

  17. Number Reset

    Be able to reset track/marker/polygon/route numbers within a particular project instead of only being able to reset numbers throughout all projects. Having a unique set of numbers (starting with "1") for each project would be helpful.

  19. Display the PLSS [township range section] Custom Grid when the Primary Coordinate System is UTM or DMS

    Presently the PLSS custom grid only shows if the Primary Coordinate System is one of the township range section choices. Allow display when the Primary Coordinate System is UTM, DMS and other.

  20. Add 1 inch = ____ feet scale check box option to the preformatted scale box that includes the scale bars and ratio scale checkbox option

    Where I was thinking would be handy is to have that scale-type option be included in the scale block that the software already has formatted, which currently contains a check box option to include the ratio scale and choices of bar scales. That check box would need a drop down menu of choices of 1 inch = ___ meters, etc to address the possible broad base of customer needs.
