Working with Vector Data in Global Mapper
January 19, 2016
In mapping technology, vector data takes the form of points, lines, or polygons, with each variant distinguished by the geometric relationship of a series of x and y (and sometimes z) values. A single coordinate pair defines a specific location or point, such as a survey benchmark; a series of connected points defines a line, such as a stream channel; and three or more points connected and filled defines a polygon, such as a property boundary. Often described as interactive spatial data, vector objects are easy to create and edit and can be used to store and display detailed information about the features that they represent.
Global Mapper's vector management tools are contained within the broad scope of the Digitizer, whose functions include freehand drawing, vector conversion, automatic feature creation, vertex-level editing, and manual coordinate geometry input. In the latest Global Mapper webcast, we explore the many functions of Global Mapper's digitizing and drawing functions including:
