Geospatial Analysis in Global Mapper Agenda

This intensive nine-hour course introduces the major components of Global Mapper’s vector and raster processing functionality using simulated real-world scenarios and workflows.

The instruction technique is hands-on so each attendee should have a Windows-based laptop computer with the latest build of Global Mapper installed. If necessary, temporary licenses will be provided to enable all of the functionality of the software for the duration of the class. All data used during the class will be provided via download prior to the class.

Users who are new to Global Mapper are encouraged to complete the concise, self-guided Introduction to Global Mapper course before the start of the class. This online easy-to-follow course has been designed to help new users understand the layout of the software as well as some of its basic features and functions. Completion of this course will ensure that the classroom-based instruction focuses on the practical applications of Global Mapper.

Training Agenda

As a means to incorporate as much of Global Mapper’s functionality as possible into the instruction process, attendees will be given the opportunity to follow a series of preconfigured workflows. While these workflows will typically focus on a specific component of Global Mapper, they will involve the use of a wide variety of tools, such as the Digitizer, Control Center, Configuration settings, etc.

The class will cover the following:

  • Digitizing and drawing
  • Advanced vector creation tools
  • Advanced vector editing techniques
  • Vector analysis
  • Attribute management
  • Labeling
  • Vector visualization and thematic mapping
  • Adjusting the properties of raster data
  • Image rectification
  • Raster calculation
  • Raster reclassification
  • Raster painting
  • Raster vectorization
  • Exporting and sharing data

Additional functionality will be introduced during the class to facilitate the structured workflows.
