  1. Add option to select measurement units for line/polygon dimensions

    Right now it is only meters/km. Maybe in the line properties you could select the measurement units to display?

  2. Add Bing maps layer

    We would consider using the Pro version if you'd add Bing maps also. With full zoom of course.

    Our new Scribble Maps API will support Bing, Google, Nokia, and eventually all other major Mapping APIs. The actual Scribble Maps platform will default to Google, but will eventually be able to be used by all APIs as well.

  4. Add option to load map from custom geoserver

    as it is possible to host an own geoserver with WMS, WFS and WCS it would be very nice to have the possibility to use scribblemaps on selfmade custom maps.

  5. add a way to resize an image that is placed on a map

    For example, I would like my students to insert images of historical sites along the Nile without the use of markers. With the ability to resize images, we'll be able to fit in a lot of sites. Thanks for the great service!

  9. FAQ needed.

    I'm new to this program and I have no idea how to use this? ie: how do I change the size of a text box so that it doesnt appear in one long line?

  11. Possibility to upload self made maps (pictures)

    It would be great if it would be possible to use an image (jpg, gif, ...) as a map. There are a lot of games for example which provide maps and for these it would also be very nice to be able to use scribblemaps as an editor.

  12. Add roads, text without frame, zoom map

    I'd like to see new options. First, I want to add or remove roads on maps. My town is small, and there aren't all streets. Of course I'd like also to add names of this streets.
    Second, I'd like to add text, but I want remowe this strange, white frame.
    Finally, I'd like to maximally zoom map even if hers quality will decrease.

    Thanks in advance.

  13. When importing a spreadsheet, allow the option for a text box in addition to markers, etc.

    When importing a spreadsheet (xls) you can already use lat/lon to post a marker and have the availability of selecting the marker to display certain values (header, address, content). I wish you could instead have it place a text box at the specified lat/lon point and have the 'content' placed as the text within the text box!

  14. Please add a legend function, like in the old scribblemaps.

    In the old scribblemaps, there was a legend function. In the new scribblemaps it doesn't! This is a problem because the old scribblemaps is not accessable anymore.

  15. Allow when drawing circles to copy and paste so size can be consistant. Also if you could move circles to precise locations.

    I would like the ability to make a 250 mile diameter circle and place it around cities of certain populations. So the ability to move circles and to copy and paste circles (and squares or images) would be very important.

    SO you can draw a line along a road to create a boundary and when you save the JPEG it will show up your line

  19. Allow measured lines to be in feet.

    It only seem to show metres/kilometres when drawing lines and/or measured lines. Or am I missing the setting to change to feet?

  20. Widget with layer control

    Like in the pro-version, it would be useful to have a layer control to switcher layers or objects on and off, without editing. This would be useful when embeded into blogs or other websites.
