Global Mapper has built in functionality for distance and area calculations, raster blending, feathering, spectral analysis, contrast adjustment, elevation querying, line of sight calculations, cut-and-fill volume calculations, as well as advanced capabilities like image rectification, contour generation from surface data, view shed analysis (including Fresnel) from surface data, watershed delineation, terrain layer comparison (including differencing), and triangulation and gridding of 3D point data. Repetitive tasks can be accomplished using the built in scripting language or comprehensive batch conversion functionality.
What's new in this version:
Version 14.2 added new right-click option to the 'Search Vector Data' dialog to allow calculating and displaying the statistics for a numeric column in a result set. This allows you to easily see the minimum, maximum, average, and standard deviation of the numeric values for all of the selected attribute for the result set.
