    Within the form, can the form submitter select a section of Google maps then draw on it?

    I am currently using Pronto Forms as well and they have a 'Sketch pad' where you can select a satellite image from Google maps to draw on. I would like to be able to do this within Jotforms as I prefer it over Pronto in most cases.

    I have attached a pronto form screen shots to help explain.

    Thanks for your help,

    Unfortunately, no, we do not have widgets that allows you to draw on a Google Map.

    However, you can use Annotate Picture widget so your users can upload an image and draw on it. Or you can also set a base picture where they can draw on.

    Would this be something that could be developed? This would be relevant to most who use the forms for field work?
