Advanced GIS Software Development Kit
The Global Mapper Software Development Kit (SDK) is a toolkit that provides access to much of the functionality of the desktop application from within an existing or custom-built application. The SDK also enables the creation of custom toolbars and extensions to enhance the data processing and analysis functionality of the standard version of Global Mapper. This capability allows in-house developers to create a unique version of the software to meet their specific needs and requirements.
The Global Mapper Software Development Kit (SDK) is available as 32- or 64-bit Windows DLL and can be used with many programming languages on a Windows platform, including Visual C++, Visual Basic, and Visual C#. It also includes a managed .NET wrapper which simplifies the memory management details when using the Global Mapper SDK with Microsoft’s .NET Framework.
The Global Mapper Software Development Kit (SDK) supports a variety of file formats. Its extensive import and export file compatibility ensure that it is one of the most interoperable GIS applications available today in the market.
The Global Mapper SDK provides access to much of the functionality of the desktop application from within an existing or custom-built application.
The Global Mapper SDK can be used to load any number of layers from almost all of the formats supported by Global Mapper. This includes nearly all imagery, elevation, and vector data formats. The SDK also supports online WMS sources, including built-in access to NED, SRTM, and Landsat7 sources. It can even load ungeo-referenced imagery by providing ground control points and projection. The toolkit will perform the rectification and display the raster layer in the appropriate projection.
The Global Mapper SDK can be used to initiate a variety of spatial data analysis procedures:
As well as providing access to spatial data files, the Global Mapper SDK offers the option to read and write data stored in a spatial database. Import and export data from:
The Global Mapper SDK provides the ability to display the Global Mapper 3D view with terrain and 3D vector features, along with any other data draped on the terrain surface. It can also retrieve the elevation at any location from elevation layers and it can even perform viewshed analysis using elevation grid layers and 3D vector data (areas, lines, and points). Recent versions have added many significant updates for working with 3D data:
