Map Overlays
programming : by Greg - April 26th 2012, 03:58PM

Since long long ago the military has used maps and graphic symbols to plan and implement combat plans. So to plan a mission, you need a MGRS topographic map, a blow up of the same map covering your Objective, and enough laminate overlays to fill a small car. I love arts and crafts just like the next guy, but is the sales guy at the mall gets a touchscreen tablet, why cant we get planning software. My list of needs: -a topographic version of Google Earth with Military Grid ref System -variable zoom and contour intervals -ability to capture snapshot the desired map -several tabbed 'layers' that I can toggle on and stack as needed -simple drawing tools -a tactical symbol database, one that recognizes the symbol I'm trying to fat finger and inserts it for me. That is all.
