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 version 20.1
The importance of the Path Profile tool has grown immensely since the introduction of the LiDAR Module. New in version 20.1 is the option to zoom in the profile view for a more detailed view of a specific section of the profile line. The updated profile display also includes a legend option to more clearly define the individual surfaces when rendering profile lines for multiple layers.
Global Mapper 20.1 introduces a default projection option. With this new configuration setting, a specified projection will be automatically applied when creating or importing any new layer.
A new tool in the expansive suite of Digitizer functions will automatically remove gaps or overlapping areas between adjacent polygons. This simple edge-matching function is based on a defined distance threshold and ensures the topological integrity of the data.
