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.
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.
