It would be nice for tower and ground if we had a North up birds eye camera view that included a mini map in one of the corners. The camera and mini map would both be independently zoomable, and the mini map can be panned. You set the mini map zoom level to view the entire airport or whatever part you’re interested in. Set the camera view so you can easily pick out individual aircraft but far enough out that you can see pending issues.
The interaction of the camera and mini map is as follows… The center of the camera view is locked to the center of the mini map. So if someone requests push, you move him to the center of the mini map, and the zoomed camera view follows.
This would make it so much easier to handle ground and tower.
