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.23 votes
Thank you for your idea, we are discussing the possible implementation of the grid lines to be used for georeferencing.
add scale to the modern maps - in some areas (eg deserts) it's very hard to find a reference points otherwise4 votes
Thank you for your idea, we will discuss it and it is possible we reconsider and will implement this feature.
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.5 votes
Sometimes, the original file location and/or name and/or extension changes. It would be nice to alter this metadata on georeferencer.org1 vote
We are planning to implement this possibility in one of the next udpates.

by changing its color or shape or something. User likes to know which point he is about to delete.3 votes
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.
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 :-)9 votes
This feature is planned for a new website, which is in progress.
- Don't see your idea?
