  1. Search box ineffectivre

    It's my first time on the site. I teach ancient history and tried to search Ancient Mesopotamia and got zero results. Based on that I don't anticipate using this website.

  2. Annotate by Typing

    Can we have the ability to annotate on a map by typing instead of drawing, and the typed notes would stay visible all the time, not only by clicking on a pin?

  4. Import data for new users error

    I'm trying to import my students' user data but keep getting this message (see attached screenshot). If I enter it manually one by one, there's no field for school. How do I resolve this issue?

  7. Why can't I see my students

    There needs to be a way for teachers to see the students that we have added. I know I added the students, but they don't appear. It is frustrating as I have to make multiple accounts to get them in.

  9. searching cities

    Cities should be searchable from the same search box as countries.

    In printed atlases, usually there is a map that shows natural resources.

  13. Physical Map with Political Boundaries/Labels Overlay Options AND Smaller Pins

    (1) Most map studies for students require physical maps with political boundaries, but NO NAMES OR PHYSICAL FEATURE LABELS. For example, students need to be able to identify and label "Rub' al Khali" on the physical map, but they also need to have the outline of the countries' borders so that they can locate each country and label it themselves. The best way to accomplish this might be to create separate overlays: "political borders", "capital locations (pins marking the locations of capitals without the names of the capitals)", "country names", "physical feature names" overlays.

    (2) The pins feature is useful…

  14. Map Legends on Downloads

    When I download the customized maps it doesn't include the legends. When my students are looking at an economic map they will have no clue what the colors mean without a legend on the download. The maps and share feature zoom in and out too much with one click. I cannot capture exactly the area I'm trying to get. It either doesn't fit in the window or is too far away to see, have labels, or include information I don't want.

  15. Ancient Empires

    It would be great to see the Fertile Crescent and Ancient Egypt. I don't really care about modern Egypt - they aren't really that important. It would make a great addition to any curricula.

  16. Print Dialog orientation

    Print dialog should be adjustable to drag to cover some area for example to print U.S. Political map.

  17. Saving Mapshots

    Mapshots are not saving pins when edited. There is NO option to "Save" or "Save As" if needed after you alter a mapshot. This makes it difficult if a class is trying to track something point by point or day by day such as the Iditarod Race and the Musher they are following. Please fix this ASAP. My poor students are getting frustrated especially since we are still having trouble getting kicked out of the program randomly. :-(

  18. Individual Maps

    I don't see a way to just print an individual country. When you zoom in, the scaling is not right to even just get to that particular country you are trying to get. You should be able to just maybe double click on a particular country and then be able to show just that and layer it or create whatever you need to with it.

  20. Compass rose, etc.

    Give each map a compass rose and a legend. Also, expanded drawing tools (particularly a circle and color choices) would make these maps much more flexible for teacher use. It would also be helpful if you would allow the importation of jpeg/gif images in the layers.
