Global Mapper 18.2 Released with New 3D Digitizing Functionality and Support for Connecting to Amazon Web Services Print E-mail
Written by Blue Marble Geographics   
Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Hallowell, Maine Ė May 30, 2017 - Blue Marble Geographics (www.bluemarblegeo.com) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Global Mapper version 18.2. This latest upgrade to the version 18 release includes new 3D digitizing functionality, support for Amazon Web Services, improved multiview display options, and several new supported data formats. As with all Global Mapper releases, the culmination of the software's ongoing development process brings with it functional and performance improvements throughout all aspects of the application.

Blue Marble's GIS software is used by hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers throughout the world who need affordable, user-friendly, yet powerful GIS solutions. Users come from a wide range of industries including software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government departments and academic institutions.

Since the initial release of version 18 of Global Mapper in September of last year, which brought with it a complete redesign of the interface, numerous subsequent enhancements have been implemented to further improve and streamline the user's interaction with the software. The release of version 18.2 introduces a new toolbar to the Overlay Control Center to simplify access to layer options, metadata, etc. The multi map view function, which is used to display multiple docked map windows, now offers the option to link the map center of two or more 2D maps allowing simultaneous panning. It also provides a built-in overview map displaying the full extent of all loaded data with rectangles denoting the visible extent of the corresponding 2D map views.
 
Improvements in the 3D View include new 3D digitizing or drawing functionality, including the option to snap to existing 3D points, lines, or polygons. Version 18.2 also includes an upgrade to the 3D fly-through visualization, which now allows the playback to be looped with the current fly-through position dynamically superimposed on the corresponding 2D map.
 
For many Global Mapper users, access to an extensive variety of data has always been one of its most important and distinguishing characteristics. With the release of version 18.2, users can now share data via Amazon Web Services (AWS) by importing from and exporting to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets. Global Mapper's Online Data offerings now include the 30 arc second (30m) resolution SRTM elevation data and ESA CCI Land Cover data for the entire world.
 
"With each release of Global Mapper, a wealth of new features and functions are added to the software, and even though it is considered a minor release, 18.2 continues this trend," stated Blue Marble's President, Patrick Cunningham. "We are particularly excited about the ongoing upgrades to the 3D View, especially 3D digitizing. Look out for continued 3D improvements in future versions."
 
Blue Marble Application Specialists will be conducting a live webinar on Thursday, June 22 during which they will showcase the highlights of this release. This hour-long presentation is scheduled to begin at 2:00 pm (U.S. Eastern Time) and it will provide an opportunity to both see the latest tools and to ask questions about the new functionality. Space is limited, and registration is required so be sure to sign up today. To register, visit: http://bit.ly/2qPblWV
