  1. Support locations via what3words

    Support indexing via what3words. This is an brilliant indexing system for the entire world where each 3x3m location can be indexed via 3 words. For example, the ChristChurch Cathedral can be located using "loaf.reason.closed"; much easier to say than "-43.5309188,172.6371539"

    This location cane be shown on a map using the url http://w3w.co/loaf.reason.closed

    I think two features would be really useful here:
    * Display the what3words location of the cursor in the Coordinates menu.
    * Provide an alternate URL scheme to allow the w3w address to be added to allow embedding, links etc.

    From the what2words website:

  2. Guru Maps app integration (for offline geo-tracking, etc.)

    Guru Maps is a third party mapping application that can use any map source (with the proper integration file).

    https://gurumaps.app/

    Creating a Guru Maps .ms (map source) file would allow NZ Topo Maps to be loaded into Guru Maps. This would add the following functionality instantly:
    - offline map use (downloadable map)
    - live geo-tracking offline
    - gpx file generation (log/save/export)
    - importing of gpx/kml/kmz layers over NZ Topo Map
    - as-the-crow-flies distance measurement between any two points
    - saving of pins (in collections)
    - alternating between NZ Topo and other map sources with the same data layers still intact

  3. Permanent Points Of Interest

    For 'adventurers' being able to say, login to topomaps nz and being able to place markers at points of interest that you can always come back and refer to at a later date would be amazing. I myself am a photographer and the option to place markers at a potential spot would be an immense addition for many people who use this service.

    Cheers

  5. Add to the API the ability to specify the layer and the transparency

  6. OSX Apple iPhone App

    Such a great resource should be available for iphones too! I would use this a lot, especially with the offline availability. And yes I'm well aware of map toaster, but the overlays with aerial and satellite imagery is game changer.

  9. Improve the search

    Improve the search so when I enter say "murphy" it finds "murphys" etc
    e.g. murphy is the equivalent of murphys* (string plust wildcard).

    Alternatively allow users to specify wildcards

  13. Easy searchable link to the Harper Pinnacles

    Often during "Peninsula Tramping Club" trips to this area we visit the HARPER PINNACLES. This is a popular formation up the Harper River (true Right) from the Avoca River confluence.

  14. Subscription option to remove ads and provide personalised user space

    For a small fee of maybe $25 / year a user can login to remove ads and get access to a personalised space with "my locations" for bookmarking locations and "my uploads" for hosting KML, GPX, etc. files on the site directly that can be private or shared.

    If I was to offer a paid option I think I'd like to provide a bit more value for $10 / $10 a year. Perhaps a "my places" for bookmarking locations and "my uploads" for adding kml / gpx files, with the option of making the files shareable. I think I'll add…
