The TN TP database can be extended with TP-linked raster map
scans and TP photographs. This feature has been available in TN from the
first release of TaskNAV version 1 in 1998. The examples below are screen
captures at 1024 x 768 pixel resolution in .PNG format and may take a short time
to load, but to see the potential, it is well worth the wait.
When the scan data is loaded to TN, flight planning enters a
new dimension as you can now instantly view map and photo images for selected
TPs, or for the task TPs, by a right mouse-click to get the map window
popup-menu. If they exist, scans are retrieved automatically for the
selected TP(s) - no browsing required. However, a general "Picture
Explorer" facility is also provided so the entire picture library can be
previewed in horizontal or vertical tiled screen mode, e.g. examples 1 and 2
below, or by Map or Photo category in groups of 12 per screen.
