Global Mapper v17
Global Mapper v17
Now With New Multi-View Interface and Enhanced Cartographic Layout Tools
We are pleased to announce the release of Global Mapper version 17. This major release offers numerous new and improved geospatial tools, functional upgrades, and performance improvements throughout all areas of the application. Significant new functionality includes a multi-view map interface allowing the simultaneous viewing and docking of several map widows as well as a completely redesigned map layout function for creating high-quality printed maps. If you would like to download this version, it is available here for download.
To introduce this new version, we will be presenting a free webinar titled “What’s New in Global Mapper v17” on Friday September 25th at 11:00am EDT
The new multi-view map display allows several docked map windows to be displayed within the interface. These views, which support both top-down 2D rendering as well as oblique 3D viewing, can be independently zoomed and panned and can be resized to make the most efficient use of the available screen space. The all-new Map Layout tools provide the necessary functionality for designing state-of-the-art printed maps. Cartographic elements such as a scale bar, compass rose, and map legend can be precisely placed within the layout frame and supplementary text and corporate branding graphics can be easily added to the design and saved as a template for future use.
Additional new functionality in Global Mapper v17 includes support for 3D models as custom symbols that are assigned to point features. These models appear as three-dimensional objects in the 3D Viewer. Several new data formats and online map services have been added including the US National map, which includes 1-foot color imagery, and World Navigation Charts at a 1:1,000,000 scale. The LiDAR Module also incorporates significant upgrades including several new filtering and point cloud clean-up options.
Global Mapper’s data processing and map rendering engine continue to show dramatic performance improvements. Version 17 sees raster display, redraw, and export speeds that are up to ten times faster than in previous versions and LiDAR processing is also significantly faster.
