Global Mapper v.19 Now Available with New Attribute Table Editor and Interactive Hillshade Rendering
Blue Marble Geographics is pleased to announce the release of Global Mapper version 19. With numerous functional improvements and performance enhancements throughout the application, the version 19 release is further evidence of Global Mapper's growing reputation as a viable alternative to traditional GIS software. Highlights of this release include a powerful new attribute editor; a new tool for dynamically adjusting the light source position for hillshade rendering; and drag and drop docking functionality for improved multiview window management.
Twenty years ago, Mike Childs began working on a project to create a simple data viewer for the U.S. Geological Survey. Little could he have envisaged that in the subsequent two decades, his pioneering work would lead to the phenom that is Global Mapper. With a worldwide following and an active user base that spans every conceivable industry from aerospace to zoology, Global Mapper has changed, and continues to change, the way geospatial professionals think about GIS.
The release of version 19 provides further evidence of the aggressive development philosophy that has driven the rapid growth of this application. Highlights of this version include:
- A new table-based attribute querying and editing tool
- An innovative interactive utility for adjusting the terrain hillshade
- Drag and drop window docking for improved multiview management
- Expanded online data services for the U.S. and Canada
- Several new predefined raster calculation formulas
- A new option to constrain the 3D view to the extent of the 2D map
- And much more
