  3. Range rings around points

    Add circles to map using diameter values that are typed in by the user rather than clicking and dragging the mouse.

    Also add e.g. range rings (a series of concentric circles around a point at user-specified spacings, e.g. 100km apart).

  4. Editing the size of the text boxes

    I would like to be able to edit the size of the textboxes I create with the markers. As it is now the boxes I create are wider than the window shown on the web and therefore you have to scroll sideways if you want to close the textbox and check what is written under another marker. If you for example have a map with "This weeks accidents" you might have ten markers and then it is a bit tedious if you have to scroll to to close the boxes. Is there a standard value for the width of the…

  6. Display colour-coded image overlay based on remote CSV file XYZ data.

    It would be useful to be able to import XYZ map data from a CSV file on a remote server, and have the map recognise the X and Y coordinates, and let the user define what the Z value is, and then create an image map based on the data. This will allow the display of location-based measurements in real time.

    I am thinking of using this feature for real-time display of temperatures as recorded by a range of weather stations across Australia; the temperature data will be recorded in a single CSV file on my web server; Scribble Maps…

  8. Allow us to save favorite colors

    Please add in a feature allowing us to save our 5 favorite colors. Every time I enter the app it defaults to Green and red in the color picker and I have to re-enter the number of each color one by one. This is very time consuming. Please allow us to add in our 5 favorites so we can simply click on the colors we need.

  9. Provide a tutorial on how to plan a spreadsheet and actually import and set it up and everything

    The only youtube tutorial was by the creator of scribble maps. While obviously he knows what he is talking about, as an educator, I can assure you he does not know how to teach others what he knows. There needs to be a step by step explanation of how to do things. In the video he mentions the spreadsheet feature that will allow spreadsheets to be imported. However it does not mention what sorts of details would need to be built into said spreadsheet to make it work in scribblemaps. As a spreadsheet wizard I was able to figure things…

    I 100% agree with you, this was literally the first video I have ever made explaining an application. However, when I made it, it was by request it wasn’t so much a tutorial video, as it was a video showing off some of the features of Scribble Maps Pro. There is two solutions to this problem, the first is I can make another video with a more step by step approach, the other is that someone else can make the video and I can include it in scribble maps.

  10. Show the distance of a line on a saved map

    I want to send a map to show the distance from one point to the other on the line I have drawn. Is there an option already to do this? If not, it would be a great asset.

  11. Enable descriptions to be added to the legend

    Allow the legend to become expandable, and allow it to contain a description of each legend item within it. I am currently working on a project that needs a description for each legend item, but the legend box is so small that it cuts out half of the title of each item.

  12. Mimic Drawing A Circle with Dividers

    I use the facility on Mapoint to draw a circle with a radius starting from the click point. This is very useful for printing a display poster for a shop that say has free deliveries with a 10 mile radius of the store.

  13. Fictional Maps

    Allow users to import or create completely custom maps of fictional places for use in games, storytelling, demonstration, etc. while maintaining the main features of Scribble Maps (such as markers, pop-up info boxes, overlays, etc.)

  15. Show length of line or shape with current scale

    Draw on the rectangle showing the square metres, but what would be even better would be if it was linked to the current scale of the google map and showed the length of the sides of the rectangle as well.

  16. Make the transition between pointer and hand easier

    To close a box (e.g. after a location search) you'll have to switch to pointer first to close it, regardless of the tool you are using you should be able to do it. Maybe using keyboard shortcuts will help as well

  18. Improve legend options

    Improve map legend options:
    Generally it's a great option. But some obvious things are missing.

    1) Add ability to edit a legend item
    2) Add ability to select also the line thickness
    3) Enable/Disable saving the legend with Images.
    4) Copy a label from one map to another.

    Thanks

  20. For creating extended polyline

    You should be able to view new measurement when creating extended poly rather than the sum.
