  3. 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?

  8. Resources in Spanish

    Provide an option that students and teachers can toggle on and off to change the language settings (esp in Spanish), so that our English language learners can benefit from world atlas.

  9. Cold War Map and Post-WWII Map

    Layers that show Europe and the rest of the Post-WWII and during and after the Cold War would be utilized frequently. Also, European colonialism in Africa would be well used.

  12. Economic Activity layer

    Your map only has primary and secondary economic activities displayed. Tertiary/service sector jobs would be a nice addition.

  13. I realize that you plan to add more history maps, but let me mention a few- I will list below because this feather isn't working for me.

    Chinese dynasties, Western powers in China (spheres of influence), India under the Mughals, the Middle East - 20th century changes, you have Africa in 900, but it would be great to have a map of kingdoms, both earlier and later (c. 1500); the world in 1300. US: native people's settlements pre-European Americas, European settlements in the 17th and early 18th, World Wars I & II (Europe and Asia); trans-Atlantic slave trade

    non-history: religion (I know this is hard but they exist.), language - I know this is listed under info, but it can be so useful to look at a…

  14. more map projections

    The Mercator map projection isn´t necessarily the best choice for most social studies maps. An equal area map like the Hobo Dyer or Peters may be a better choice.

  15. SmartBoard plugin

    Making a SmartBoard plugin to operate within SmartNotebook14 efficiently, like being able to pin to the toolbar, would be a huge asset.

  17. new world map

    I want to create a new world map consisting of a number of large area maps with sides ranging from 2,000 miles to 4,200 miles and outer edge distortion of less than 5 percent. The polar areas would be from 60 to 90 degrees latitude for a total arc of 60 degrees. I've defined ten continental and subcontinental area for land areas 5 ocean areas. Mercator won't do. A Google earth screen shot gives a good flat image from directly above an area of interest, but lacks longitude latitude lines and has poor labels.

  19. Minimize or "Hide" the side menu?

    You need to make your maps available in a full screen mode.

  20. need more outlines!

    This tool is useful, but only partly. For example: you provide a map of European countries during WWI, but it's already labeled. If we want students to label their own maps, it's only good as a reference. We're still left googling a blank world map of WWI.

    It would be lovely to have labeled and unlabeled (outline) maps for the history section.
