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.10 votes
Great ideas! These are all in our roadmap. Just to note, most of the “Layers” do have legends, but we’ll be adding them for the maps as well.
Add a tool to allow students to measure distances between two points in miles and kilometers.7 votes
Being able to print particular sections of the world is difficult because I can't manually adjust the Screenshot.5 votes
We are planning to build a more flexible print tool in the future. You can also access a variety of pre-built maps by turning on the Geography Explorer and clicking on the “Maps” tab after clicking a country.
You need more historical maps to make this worth my while . . . e.g. railroad maps, slave routes, Missouri Compromise etc.
It would also be nice to be able to turn on/off features like rivers, capitals
Thanks for the feedback! We’re working on adding more history maps to the World Atlas and have many more to come over the course of the upcoming year.
Also, if you turn on the Geography browser by clicking the slider in the top left corner, you can click on any country or state and see more information. Under each state, you can click the “Maps” link and see a bunch more historical maps there. They’re all in PDF format and are downloadable. We’ll also be moving many of these to the more “dynamic” layers soon!
We appreciate the feedback!
