Plugins and Interfaces for the Global Mapper SDK

Raster / Elevation Import Plugin

Global Mapper supports loading of raster and gridded elevation data through user-supplied import plugins. These plugins are Windows DLLs. See the download link below for more details.

Once loaded, these imported layers can be used just like any other natively supported layer. This allows advanced users to provide support for their own custom/proprietary formats without needing to provide format information to Global Mapper or wait for us to be able to implement the format.

Raster/Elevation Export Plugin

Global Mapper supports exporting any loaded data to raster and gridded elevation data formats through user-supplied export plugins. These plugins are Windows DLLs. See the download link below for more details.

This functionality allows advanced users to provide support for exporting data to their own custom/proprietary formats without needing to provide format information to Global Mapper or wait for us to be able to implement the format.

External Control Interface

Global Mapper supports allowing external applications to control the view window bounds displayed, display point symbols and text at user-specified locations on the main map display, and add new point, line and area features to the active Global Mapper workspace. This is accomplished through the use of WM_COPYDATA messages to pass data between Global Mapper and the external application.

The structure definitions as well as sample C++ code for controlling Global Mapper are provided in the download below.
