  1. Return of the drop down entry to base map.

    Go back to the drop down menu for choosing modern maps. The system currently in use for the Nationaalarchief is irritating me as I have to move the cursor all over the screen to go to my favourite map.

  2. 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…

  4. 3D view of georeferenced map (with digital elevation)

    Support for digital elevation models.

    It would be great to end up with a georeferenced old map overlaid on top of an accurate digital elevation. You can see an example of this here - https://www.davidrumsey.com/view/georeferencer

  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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  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.

  13. Change Original File Location or name

    Sometimes, the original file location and/or name and/or extension changes. It would be nice to alter this metadata on georeferencer.org

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. trace building outlines and save as geojson

    Hi-

    v4 is fantastic, thank you.

    It would be great to trace things once we've georectified a map. http://geojson.io is a great too and is open source for drawing vectors and saving to GeoJSON, might be worth taking a look.
