I need to create an image map for the floorplan you see here:
I could use gimp's imagemap plugin as is, but 3 simple mods would make it even
better. What I would like to do is just click once on each number (so 98
clicks) and save to a .txt file just the x,y of each click. (I would then load
the xy's into a database that would later generate the html image map with
to who is at the various locations.) That is how I would use it this time, but
the mods I am suggesting to make this happed would also add some features that
might get used later.
1. default circle radius - in the preferences dialog, add a checkbox "use
default radius" and a numeric input box. When enabled, it would only require
one click to create a circle, and all of the circles would be the same size.
For consistency, it might be good to have a default rectangle too. default
would be more work, not sure it would ever be used.
2. suppress settings dialog - preferences, "show Area Settings on Area
creation" on is current behavior, off would just add the area do the Region
3. add a "File type" to the save as dialog. .map is the current behavior, .dat
would be a CSV or something suitable for being read into a database. Probably
best if it is something that could be easily read back in via the 'Open' option.
I started looking at the source
http://svn.gnome.org/viewvc/gimp/trunk/plug-ins/imagemap/ and decided my C
skills weren't up to it. But they are not non existent, so if someone wants to
do a 0.1 version, I can build, test and maybe even debug it.
