Global Mapper is more than just a utility; it has built in functionality for distance and area calculations, raster blending, feathering, spectral analysis, 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, watershed delineation, sea level rise modeling, terrain layer comparison, and triangulation and gridding of 3D point data. Global Mapper 15, released September 18th, 2013 features a ton of great new functionality and is the largest Global Mapper release to date.
The release of version 15.2 features a variety of updates to both the Global Mapper base product and the Global Mapper LiDAR Module. In particular new functionality has been added to allow the user to automate the "New Feature Creation" process. Users may now create a series of features that share the same attribute structure, target layer, and other characteristics without having to repeatedly confirm these settings in the "Modify Feature Info" dialog box. This release also features the addition of free online datasources including full access to the Maine GIS catalog, as well as access to Aviation Charts and OpenStreetMap vector data via WMS.
Other enhancements include support for creating buffer areas around line features with variable width from beginning to end and for creating buffers on just one side of a selected line feature. Powerful new scripting functionality has been added to allow conditional (IF/THEN/ELSE) processing within a script file. 3D models from Collada DAE files have been updated with the option to load BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIFF images with no geo-position information directly, improved 3DPDF support, and enhancements to CityGML.
