Getting Started with the TNP Web Project Editor

With the Web Project Editor you can view maps, create markers, draw tracks or routes, import GPS files, print maps at home and much more. Projects created with the TNP Web Project editor are saved to your TNP account, automatically available in your TNP Mobile app (for Android or iPhone) and available in the TNP PC desktop using Project Synchronization (via TNP Mobile.) 

Note: This advanced tool requires an active subscription to Terrain Navigator Pro.

Our YouTube Channel contains many videos to help you get the most of TNP. Related topics include Key Features of the TNP Web Planner and Web, Mobile and Desktop Platform Integration.

Tap the Project Options area to see all the info related to your project. You will see a list of markers, tracks, routes, and geopins. In addition, you can access advanced settings and rename your project. Most importantly, this is where you save your project to your TNP account. Once a project is saved to your account, you can access it and navigate with it using TNP mobile (automatically - as they use the same TNP cloud for storage) or on TNP PC desktop (using Project Synchronization to TNP Mobile.)  

Select the Map Types icon and pick from a wide variety of map types to help edit your project. No map is perfect or has all the info you may need. Switch between map types to get a better understanding of the area, including its terrain, topography, streets and trails.

There are a selection of pre-defined layers that can be added to the map. These include grids, public land boundaries, and various weather/temperature options reflecting current conditions.

Press the Home button to save the project (if changes were made) and return to the Project Details screen. Here you can view the project (without editing it) and get information on its contents as well as make certain edits. Click Return to Projects to exit this window and select a different project for viewing, activation, and editing.
