Global Mapper
So You Think You Know Global Mapper? - Part II January 24, 2017
No Registration Required

When planning December's webcast, during which we uncovered some of Global Mapper's less well-known components, it quickly became apparent that there was considerably more content than could be discussed in a single hour-long presentation. So much so, in fact, that we realized that a second webcast would be needed.

December's agenda introduced some of our favorite workflows, including vectorizing features from a raster layer and label optimization, but left us no time for raster feathering, density mapping, or several other hidden Global Mapper gems. So for January's webcast, we pose the same question as before, "So You Think You Know Global Mapper?" This month's session will include:

  • Adding hyperlinks to features on the map
  • Using Info Tips
  • Customizing the Default Data
  • Several hidden Digitizer tools
  • Spatial bookmarking
  • Feathering imagery or elevation layers
  • Creating a density map
  • And much more

Geographic Calculator
Geographic Calculator 2016 Service Pack 2 - What's New in SP2! February 1, 2017 at 2:00 pm (EST)
Registration Required

In this session on the Geographic Calculator, new and intermediate users will be familiarized with the layout and operation of the application. Users experienced in previous versions will get a refresher on the software and an introduction to recent functional upgrades, including support for writing coordinate systems for a Petrel™ CTL file and updates that streamline working with the Area Calculation interface. We will also take a look at the new beta release of the GeoCalc Geodetic Registry and how it works. The new online registry can be used to research and update new geodetic definitions into Geographic Calculator's database which also now includes deprecation of definitions that are no longer valid. There's a lot to cover, so join us for this hour on what's new in Calculator!

* Dates are subject to change.

Below are videos of some of our previous webinars and webcasts for you to review.

Global Mapper

Part 2: Using GeoCalc Mode in Global Mapper

July 30, 2015

Automatically available when a copy of Geographic Calculator 2015 is installed on the same computer as Global Mapper v16, this tool makes all of the predefined or custom definitions from the Geographic Calculator extensive datasource of projections, geoids, and datums available within the Global Mapper interface. During this session, we will demonstrate many of the advanced operations that be performed with this combination of tools, including powerful and accurate horizontal and vertical datum transformations, file reprojection, and custom projection creation. With the integration of GeoCalc into Global Mapper 16, all of these geodesic calculations can now be performed on over 200 different file types along with Global Mapper's advanced analysis and data visualization capabilities.
