Dive Deep into Projections with special guest, Dave Doyle, former Chief Geodetic Surveyor at the NGS
December 7, 2016 at 2:00 pm (2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST)
Projections are inseparable from Cartography and GIS. With that in mind, it's sometimes easy to let the fundamentals slip and when that happens, mistakes in measurements and analysis can lead to bad decisions. Following on from our last geodesy session on Datums, in this session with special guest David Doyle, the former Chief Geodetic Surveyor at the National Geodetic Survey, we will take a deep dive into the world of projections. Sam Knight, Director of Product Management at Blue Marble will begin the session with a refresher on the basics of map projection and modern development of "low distortion projections" that are increasing in use around the world. Then David Doyle currently with Base9 Geodesy will take us through some discussion of the background of the state plane systems and a discussion of how the new datums coming in 2022 in the US will affect our work with projections, particularly the US State Plane coordinate systems in the coming years. We will be taking questions throughout and also have a dedicated question and answer period to wrap up. Join Blue Marble and Base9 Geodesy for what is sure to be a great geodetics session on working with projections.
If you are a typical Global Mapper user, you probably only use a small percentage of the capability of the software. Satisfied with its ability to perform their required data processing operations, many users, even those with years of experience, remain unaware of some of Global Mapper's more powerful features and functions. For those who do venture deeper into the less familiar dialog boxes and menus, the rewards can be bountiful.
In the latest monthly Global Mapper webcast series, we delve into the software to expose some of its less well-known components. Encompassing all aspects of the software, this hour-long presentation will introduce both novice and experienced users to an array of tools that you may not have known were available. Specific topics will include:

A basic understanding of the key components of Global Mapper is an essential part any data processing or analysis workflow. In this hour-long presentation, we provide guidance and advice for new users of the software to help streamline and improve productivity. Starting with the installation and registration process, we introduce many of the important features and functions of the software including interface navigation; file, layer, and workspace management; data access and importing; feature creation and editing; and file exporting. The content of this presentation provides a solid foundation on which to successfully utilize the more powerful tools in the software.
This session geared towards new to intermediate users will take a look at all of the general features of the Geographic Calculator. Users new to the application will be familiarized with the layout and operation and users coming up from previous versions can get a refresher on recent changes to the interface and the latest developments in Geographic Calculator.
