Leverage the power of Global Mapper by purchasing the Global Mapper Software Developer Kit (SDK)! Software developers can improve existing software or create custom stand-alone applications with the SDK.
Now customers can also create desktop extensions for Global Mapper. Global Mapper SDK Developers can extend Global Mapper Desktop functionality through toolbars and menu items by joining the Blue Marble Developer Network program to help promote their custom software.

The Global Mapper SDK provides a Windows DLL which allows much of the functionality of Global Mapper to be accessed from third party applications. The SDK includes both native 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs, so you can target any Windows system. The Global Mapper SDK is a standard Windows DLL and can be called from just about any programming language on a Windows platform, including Visual C++, Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Java with JNI.
Global Mapper SDK synchronizes the software developer toolkit with Global Mapper desktop software releases, which enables a more consistent release cycle. This ensures that software developers are able to work with the most current features and functions introduced to the desktop version of the software.
Recent releases introduced dramatic speed improvements for all data types especially for LiDAR and other 3D data ranging from four to 10 times faster depending on number of cores and processing power. Additional improvements have included support for pan sharpening imagery, the use of 3D point styles to render graphically pleasing objects like trees in 3D, several new built-in online sources, and updates to GPS tracking, including new tracking functions to follow the live position more closely and orient the map to the GPS Heading.
Since version 16, an add on LiDAR Module is available for the Global Mapper SDK. Advanced LiDAR functionality can now be added to the standard SDK product activating a host of powerful LiDAR tools, including automatic reclassification, feature extraction for rendering 3D buildings/trees/power lines, and advanced point cloud filtering options. Included in the latest release of the LiDAR Module is automatic classification of high and low noise points as well as calculation of basic rooftop statistics from point clouds.
