Global Mapper SDK

External Control Interface

Global Mapper supports allowing external applications to control the view window bounds displayed, display point symbols and text at user-specified locations on the main map display, and add new point, line and area features to the active Global Mapper workspace. This is accomplished through the use of WM_COPYDATA messages to pass data between Global Mapper and the external application.

The structure definitions as well as sample C++ code for controlling Global Mapper are provided in the download below.
