The latest iteration of the ever-evolving GIS suite features an upgrade to its LiDAR module, a new extension for MangoMaps, new iOS and Android apps and more.
Following the announcement of a partnership with MangoMaps earlier this month, the Maine-based Blue Marble has announced the latest version of their flagship Global Mapper product.
Leading the feature list is the new MangoMaps extension, facilitating web publishing from Global Mapper with ease — Blue Marble claims two clicks.
Upgrades to the LiDAR module include an automatic point classification tool, and improvements to the Pixels-to-Points photogrammetry module, which now includes a masking function and tool to automatically locate pixels with ground control points, based on their location.
Updated labelling tools include a new keyframe animation tool, improved assignment of drawn vector features to an appropriate layer and a new terrain analysis function.
The Global Mapper Mobile platform features a range of updates, capped by new Pro versions containing new features: streaming service support with the ability to add custom sources, support for GeoPDF and GeoPackage, GPS averaging and various projection options.
Blue Marble’s president, Patrick Cunningham, said that this release release illustrates Global Mapper’s expanding geospatial footprint.
“In this one release cycle, we have introduced countless new tools for GIS analysts, LiDAR managers, drone operators, and field technicians,” he said.
“Global Mapper is the Swiss Army Knife for the geospatial community, and we are so pleased to be able to bring all of these capabilities together in one GIS platform while still keeping the price very affordable.”
The company will run a webinar to walk through the new features on October 3. Registration is required and can be done at Blue Marble’s website.
