Good morning. I'm new in the fórum, but i've been using OPEN CPN
for a long time.
After the last versión, I decided to go on this fórum to request new features for OPEN CPN
that will make the day for me and some friends of mine.
Could somebody develope a feature in OPEN CPN that allows the users to draw and activate/deactivate sectors fixed to own ship's position?
The sectors (it could be useful to add/delete/modify them after being created) would be created by 2 true or relative bearings and two depths (in meters,miles or nautical yards) and then to maintain their position relative to the geographic North or relative to the ship's course, thus rotating when the ships alters her course.
Also, If they could be created with different kinds of lines and/or colors they would allow the user to play a bit more with them.
And if they would allow the user to name them and this name to appear on the screen
it would the greatest for me and my friends. If somebody needs more information on what I really need to be implemented I'm pretty sure i'll be able to clarify by e-mail.
I think i've uploaded with this post a picture of what I'd like to be implemented in OPENCPN
DRAW plugin as a new feature or anywhere else.
Please let me know if this idea is considered to be developed. Thanks in advance to all for the fórum and the great ideas that i've found on it.
