Registration Required

The live webinar for the month of March showcases the highlights of the latest release of Global Mapper. Version 18.1 is complimentary upgrade to version 18 and includes numerous functional enhancements and performance improvements throughout many areas of the software.

The release of version 18 of Global Mapper in September of last year introduced a completely redesigned interface to optimize workflow and improve productivity. Building on this foundation, version 18.1 includes upgrades to the 3D Viewer, fly-through visualization, format support, and much more.

Among the specific topics that will be covered in this presentation are:

  • Improved interaction between the 2D and 3D Views
  • New function to calculate color statistics within an area
  • Options to adjust bank angle and velocity when creating a fly-through
  • New Range Ring option to derive radius from and attribute
  • Several new formats including LandXML(export) and RMaps/MBTiles (import)
  • New online data sources including General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO)
  • For LiDAR Module users, a new QC tool for adjusting elevations to ground control points

For the duration of the presentation, Blue Marble staff members will be available to answer questions from webinar attendees. Registration is required and space is limited so be sure to sign up today.

So You Think You Know Global Mapper?

December 21, 2016

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:

  • Extracting vector polygons from imagery
  • Thematic mapping
  • Raster layer blending
  • Creating a Voronoi diagram
  • Density mapping
  • And much more

Dive Deep into Projections with special guest, Dave Doyle, former Chief Geodetic Surveyor at the NGS

December 7, 2016

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.
