  1. 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.

    Thank you for your idea, we are currently working on implementing this feature.

    “Also, it would be helpful to know how long it typically takes for edits to become permanent.”
    Can you please specify, what you mean by “edits to become permanent” ?
    Thank you

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

    The active node is visible when you point the mouse cursor on it but we will review the idea and implement the color change.

    To exit this mode is easy by clicking on the other panel (Overlay e.g.).

    To improve this feature, please feel free to be more specific.
