How to Activate Global Mapper Single-User License

Written by: Rachael Landry


The Global Mapper single-user licensing process begins with an email. When a purchase is completed, an order confirmation email is automatically sent with information and instructions on how to license the software, including links to download Global Mapper, information about how to become a registered user, and access to detailed instructions on how to activate the license. The email also provides the order number for the purchase, which is used to activate single-user licenses via the internet.

*It is important to note that the email is generally sent to the purchaser unless otherwise requested. Please keep this in mind if the software was purchased by your company the licensing email may have been sent to the purchasing department and not the end-user.

After reviewing the order confirmation email, the next step is to download Global Mapper and open the application. The software will open with the License Global Mapper dialog box where you enter your user information (make sure to enter the same information you use to login to the Blue Marble website). If you are not a registered user, follow this link to register before proceeding. Then select the Activate single-user or trial license option, and click the Continue button.

In the next dialog box, select the Single user license option and enter your complete order number. Note that this field is case-sensitive. This dialog box also allows users who purchased Global Mapper and the optional Lidar Module in the same order to license it at the same time. Finally, click the “Continue” button to complete the licensing process.

After your copy of Global Mapper has been registered, please be sure to check out all of Blue Marble’s Global Mapper resources. From the YouTube page to the self-guided training, and bi-monthly webinars, Blue Marble wants to provide you with the tools to ensure that you are using Global Mapper to the fullest.

If you have any questions or issues activating your license please contact authorize@bluemarblegeo.com.
