  1. Minimize tool bar

    It would be nice if we would have the ability to minimize the tool bar/menu on the left so that we could have a full screen view of the maps we want to see. When working on a SMART board that is more suited to a square screen (800X600), this menu takes up too much room to maximize the map view.

  4. merdator madness

    You need some way of adjusting the projection to the overhead point rather than making Antarctica the world's biggest continent.

    I tried to make a map of the Indian Ocean and I save something but I could not see my map, just a whitish rectangle on the larger map with the distance distortions going south.

    It would help to have topographic elevation lines and satellite images. That may require a step progression starting with some limit on area looked at befor loading data-heavy layers.

  5. Better colors in map keys, more information on maps

    For the different maps, it is hard to read the key.
    1. Some maps become readable before the map key does and you have to keep zooming in so you can read it. (For example the US about the time of the American Revolution).
    2. On other maps the colors on the maps don't seem to correspond to the colors in the key or the colors are indistinguishable because they are so close. (For example the Birth Rates map). It would help to use colors that weren't shades of other colors.

    The first thing I did was search "American Revolution"…

  7. Is it possible to create my own themes?

    I would like to select and group various countries into categories. Having a list of countries and being able to drag/drop them into categories or at least click on them and creating my own legend, would be really nice.

  8. 13 Colonies with Roanoke, Jamestown, Plymouth denoted

    I teach 5th grade with a focus on colonization. One concept is seeing the New World grow from individual settlements to larger colonies. Another concept is focusing on the 3 original colony settlements from Roanoke that disappeared to Jamestown, a merchant colony to Plymouth the religious colony.

  9. 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.

  10. Save maps and layers as "Favorites"

    Let us flag maps and layers as "favorites" so they appear at the top of the list and we can access them quickly
