Global Mapper is an easy-to-use, robust, and genuinely affordable GIS application that combines a wide array of spatial data processing tools with access to an unparalleled variety of data formats.
Priced at $549, Global Mapper is almost entirely user-designed. Over the years, the software has been expanded by forward-thinking GIS professionals who recognize that there has to be a better and more affordable solution than ArcGIS.
From simple drag-and-drop importing to two-click contour generation, Global Mapper dispels the notion that GIS is a complex discipline. Within minutes of installing and registering the software, even the most inexperienced GIS novice can create a presentation-quality map, a feat that can take several semesters of college-level ArcGIS instruction to achieve.
At $549 for a single-seat perpetual license, you receive a complete GIS data management suite in one application. No additional financial outlay is required.
