It would be very helpful to not only have pins (and/or icons as are in the works) for images but also to be able to select overlays like you can do with something like Google Earth. This could be very helpful for having not just a singular location, but an area that otherwise acts like a pin.

I'm thinking particularly here about things like having countries on a world map, states on country maps and so on. Certainly there may be plenty of issues to deal with (how to handle multiple overlays, for example, if you even allow that at all, or setting up drawing tools for it, do you just allow rectangular or maybe circular selections of is it possible to do free-hand area selections, etc.) but I would really find something like this worthwhile on many of the smart images I've been working with.

Sort of like districts in a city and so on. Being able to remove the overlay as a GM and or adding parts or all of the overlay would be awesome!!
Can even do a map key with this type of idea!!
Fantastic IDEA!!

Especially if it could handle transparent png files. That way, you could over lay coloured hexes for the likes of a Kingmaker campaign.

+1 here!

Sleet was enjoying a tasty beverage at his local tavern, when a Tarrasque showed up in the local area. He managed to valiantly get on it's back and ride it. How he did it is a mystery to this day...

+1 to this.

I was looking for a way to do this on the board. I would love to be able to add cascading maps. Like a map of the Inner Sea Region containing a map of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings that contains a map of Kalsgard.

+1 for this (Great Idea Cajun!) many maps could be customized to define battle line disputes, provences, parish control of churches, hunting areas for apex creature types, etc
