You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Stylize Map to Black & White for better visibility of markers

    I'd like the ability to have the road-based map stylized in black and white for better visibility of the markers. I know that OpenMaps has this option, not sure if I've seen this in Google's native API, but I have seen this desaturation trick work:

    http://jsfiddle.net/alan1986/R5PXH/1/

    This really makes the markers "pop" but you do not lose the usefulness of the roads/boundaries.

    Love the idea. The consideration on our end is that Google has limitation on how many styled maps are loaded in a day. While I don’t see this as a huge use case, it’s what we have to consider before just implementing this.

  3. Ability to show multiple routes on the same map

    It would be helpful to be able to show multiple routes on the same map, so for example if I wanted to share with someone where I'll be next week, I can share a map with the 5 routes showing.

  4. External layers allow browse to hard drive

    I have KML files on my hard drive and don't want to use an external url for mapping. I would like the opportunity to browse for a KML file

  5. Enable printing of a mapped dataset

    We have many users who would like to print out a mapped dataset (without having to map a route and save to pdf, etc.). They use the print out as a reference while they work in other applications, etc. They'd like to be able to print right from the map and get something similar to the attached.

  6. Export formal reports - reporting feature.

    A formal reporting feature within Geopointe would be helpful. I'd like to take the data and map and be able to export it into a report that would be clean and easy to read for our reps out in the field.

  7. Creating Defined Territories with Colored Polygon Shaped Layers

    I think it would be great if we can define territories based on specified colored polygon shaped layers that can be customized. For example, if I had a liaison in the LA area that had a defined territory based on the shape we define on the map, and not by zip code or something, it would help with visualization.

  8. Change a data set color on the fly

    I'd love to be able to go to the map legend and change the data set color within the legend or on the map.

  9. Ability to save a specific search

    Data Sets are great and very flexible, but I'd love to be able to save a detailed search. Perhaps I want to regularly search 50 miles around a specific address and color the pins by a certain field. I'd love to be able to bookmark that situation and run it rather than having to recreate it manually.

    It's not difficult to recreate the search, but being able to save those very specific searches could be nice.

  10. Google earth Integration would be nice..

    We use the Google Earth app on our Desktops & iPhones to plot custom layers..
    - Currently your Map options dropdown only lists: Map, Satellite, & Open Street, as well as Street View..
    - Can Google Earth be added as an integrated option?

  11. Open Multiple Location Flags (or pin names) at the same time.

    As all the pins appear, we naturally hover over each to see who they are. Then we click into the Pin to see the details flag. Back and Forth, Back and Forth... I'd love to be able to keep multiple flags open at the same time. Having the flag location be adjustable for printing maps would be great too.

  12. See the data list without needing to scroll down the page

    When I map data, I see the map first and a list below. The list is great because it has all of the details, but it would be really nice to see the list of records inline with the Map so I don't have to scroll down. Even if it's not the entire table and just the name of the record, that'd be a big win.

  13. location development for businesses

    i have a new idea which will target businesses and employees. Simply it is the end for finger prints and swiping the cards. All will be related to mobiles and will calculate the working hours all automatically.

    need to get in touch with someone so i could illustrate more.

  14. Allow for realtime updates off URLs to KML feeds.

    There is the existing capability to pull in a KML file as well as the ability to put in a URL for a KML feed. This is great except it does not real time update. You have to repaste and save the URL to get most recent update. Example, pulling in KML feed from the National Hurricance Center (a live feed). T

  15. Include Search Center in Export

    Only the results of the search export to CSV. The record that you are searching from should also be included.
