  2. 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.

  3. support PNG (especially with transparency)

    PNG format is not supported. Seems like an obvious thing to include. Example file: http://i.imgur.com/VTImJ.png

  4. allow for input coordinates directly

    sometimes maps have pass marks, it would be nice to allow for direct input of coordinates

  5. Put something on the My maps page - something like links to map collections I can georeference

    when I log in as a new user I have no maps on My maps page - I would like to have something like invitation to georeference something - like you have on the main page... or even a random map to work on (maybe something from MZK :-)

  6. Generate grid overlays on reference map if a grid or markers are present on unreferenced map.

    Lots of maps already have a grid and location markers present. Based on suspected location of map publisher and era, a CRS might be suggested and overlayed on both or reference maps, should always be override-able by user with a known EPSG code or even custom definition. This also should be used for determining the transformation function if CRS type is known.

  8. provide a downloadable, georeferenced image (pdf or ...) that I can save to a mobile device and import into an app such as PDF maps

    Great! I got the georeferencing all done, but my data is still "stuck" on the website. I know I can download the kmz and the wld files, but I don't think that will help in using the original image/pdf with apps such as PDF Maps, which on android, can import georeferenced maps.

  10. to fix the website, it doesn´t work for me at all. Doesn´t load the images.

    I can´t load any image at all. It seems the website is totally useless. I´ve georeferenced a couple of images, but I can´t do that anymore.

  12. 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

  14. mark "active" node of cutline

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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/

  19. 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)
