  1. 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.

  2. allow for input coordinates directly

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

  3. 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 :-)

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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/

  12. 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)

  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

  16. 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

  17. create an accessibility statement

    In the UK, accessibility regulations came into force for public sector bodies on 23 September 2018. They say you must make your website or mobile app more accessible by making it ‘perceivable, operable, understandable and robust’. You need to include and update an accessibility statement on your website.

    The full name of the accessibility regulations is the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

    The accessibility regulations build on your existing obligations to people who have a disability under the Equality Act 2010 (or the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 in Northern Ireland).

    For example, somebody…

  18. add support for MrSID images from LoC

    Jpeg2000 from Library of congrass works fine - could you add MrSID support as well?

  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.
