Suggestions / Ability to calculate distance

The ability to judge the distance by drawing a trace line on the map. This would enable a user to trace a footpath, road or area and then have it calculate the distance using the current scale.
Suggestions / Ability to capture coordinates at a sepcific point on map

The current maps allows you to toggle the coordinates so that you can see the coordinates as the mouse moves over the map. However if you want to capture these coordinates, then you have to stop moving the mouse and write the coordinates down by hand. It would be good if you were able to stop the coordinates from changing at a particular point (for copy and paste actions) or  to capture the coordinates by right clicking at a point and selecting "capture coordinates" ready for follow on paste actions.
Suggestions / Re: Show footpaths at a greater zoom level?

I have been thinking of ways around the lack of footpath data at higher zoom levels for a while. The best I can come up with is to trace the footpath at a level where they are visible using some tracer tool I'll have to develop and then show the trace at a higher zoom level.
I don't know if it'll work and it will take a while to develop completely.
So sadly there is no quick answer unless we can petition OS to show that data at higher zoom levels.
Suggestions / Show footpaths at a greater zoom level?

Love this site, i've been on loads of walks in and around the area i live by discovering footpaths that are so difficult to see on a standard OS map, but is there any way of showing the footpaths when zoomed in at a level greater than 8? Cheers
Support / Running out of data

I noticed when I used the site tonight that the site is hitting it's quota of free data. Ordnance Survey only let me display a fixed number of map tiles a day and now, due to site popularity, I'm hitting it.
I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do about this, to buy an unlimited amount of daily data from OS costs lots. My advice is if you need some maps then get up early and get them  ;)
