Georeferencer

  1. Add into Admin API information whether the map is finished

    It would be great to filter in API on "finished" status of a map, not only on review - and have information about when was a map finished and when it was reviewed.

  3. Import PDF + Grid lines

    I'm used to georeferencing dozens of approach plates for aviation, which means it would be awesome to import them directly in PDF at a given DPI. Most of the charts come with the lat and lon marks so, instead of placing points, it would be faster to simple position 2 latitude lines for top and bottom and 2 longitud lines for left and right sides.

  4. Guidance for volunteers on number of points and clip points

    There have been a number if maps recently where i was presented with a map where the number of points entered exceeded 150 (One recent of map of San Francisco had points on every street intersection some 300+) It is extremely time consuming removing these points. Can there be a maximum as well as a minimum number of points for each map.?
    Clipping the map. Can I have some guidance on what should be included in a clipped map eg legend, co-ordinates, title, scale. ( there have been a number of instances when a map has clipped to the outline…

  5. More Specific Error Messages for WMS Problems

    If I try to use this WMS:
    https://www.ogd.stadt-zuerich.ch/wms/geoportal/HistorischerUebersichtsplanderStadtZuerichum1900
    (which works in QGIS), I get just the generic error msg "URL is not a valid WMS server (error loading WMS Capabilities)".
    Sometimes it's a leading blank in the URL which gives the same error.

  6. upload a .TIFF for crop and clip only

    i already georeferenced my .tiff to exact points with another tool, but i need to clip and crop only a portion of the map without loosing my georeference points, but when upload a .TIFF i can clip it but i must to georeference it again in this tool to be able to export and i dont want that.

  7. enable base map to be rotated

    The rotation of source map introduced in version 4 is great, however it does not solve an imprtant issue. A lot of historical maps and plans (like cities from old sketches) have landmarks drawn. When such map is NOT oriented to the North, then after rotating the base map, it does not look good. It would be great, if there would be a possibility to rotate also the base map (openstreetmap, google maps, satelite view, etc)

  8. Keep track of the number of edits by a user

    It would be helpful if the number of edits that each user commits was tracked and perhaps was encouraged through some benefits.

    Also, it would be helpful to know how long it typically takes for edits to become permanent.

  9. Have an "undo" or "step back" option for accidents

    This is for when you accidentally click something with your mouse and you don't even know what control point you changed, you just see it is skewed.

  10. book map parts together like puzzle pieces

    The ability to add parts of book map together like a puzzle on one map. (like Christopher Colles's book map of 1798). Presently I believe you can only compare maps by clicking on them separately.

  11. More then 2 pieces maps on one image

    Some images are divided into more than two pieces. It is quite a problem to divide it, because it is necessary to save the map between each subsequent split and then reload it.

  12. Real Time Control Point Accuracy Feedback

    Most times I am Georeferencing I wonder, is the control point I'm about to add accurate. It would be wonderful to be able to instantly see if it was after I add it. Three specific suggestions.


    1. In the Coordinates Pane, prominently show an Average Error score. That way after a point is added you can see if the score goes up or down.


    2. In the Transformation tab of the pane show an Average Error score foe each of the transformation types you can select. That way you know which one is best to select.


    3. If you add a Control Point…

  15. Provide a way to mark lat/long grids.

    Many maps have grid lines drawn on them. There should be an easy way to mark where two lines cross and specify the lat/long of that point to georeference it. On some maps, just marking all the grid points would be all that is needed, and would be much easier than matching up map features. Some maps (especially older ones) might have inaccurate lines and need corrections from there, but using the lines would still be a big help to get them started. I've also seen a couple maps where the grid lines were almost the only usable details.

  16. Enable Preference Saving / Personal Defaults

    Upon importing a new image to orthorectify, the map defaults to streets - as I'm utilizing old air photos, often times - there are no streets... it would be great to save a personal default to satellite.

    This could also be useful once the image is complete - to have a choice to go directly to the "this map" page.

    Thanks

  18. Allow digitizing points, lines & polygons

    It would be great to permit digitizing/tracing of point, polyline, and polygon geometries once a map is georectified, then saving them. Old maps are the best source for approximate locations of places that no longer exist or have changed names. And they are virtually the only source for approximate locations of roads, rail, former river courses. With this feature, Georeferencer could fully support "historical mapathons," which will add a great volume to the historical geodata commons. Points would be highest priority, followed by lines and polygons.

  19. Coordinates Sidebar on Side by Side and Overlay Layouts

    It would be amazing to see the coordinates as you add control points so you can keep track of how accurately you are doing so.

    Recommended UX would be to get rid of the coordinates tab and integrate the coordinates pane into the Side by Side and Overlay layouts. Clicking on a Coordinates icon would slide out the pane in the same manner that the other maps pane slides out.

  20. High Res Vector Base Map

    Ability to use High quality vector base map as a base layer.

    Ideally the following three layers will be available.
    1. OSM Bright - https://openmaptiles.org/
    2. Streets (including 3d buildings) - https://maps.klokantech.com/
    3. Positron - https://openmaptiles.org/
