Global Mapper v19.1 Now Available with 3D Profile Line Exporting, Multivariate Querying, and Expanded Drag-and-Drop Window Docking
Blue Marble Geographics is pleased to announce the release of Global Mapper version 19.1. This intermediate release augments the impressive list of new features and functions included in version 19.0 with even more new tools and improvements to the existing functionality. Highlights of this release include a completely redesigned attribute querying tool; a new option to save and export 3D lines from the Path Profile tool; support for drag-and-drop docking of most floating windows; and the ability to create a 3D mesh in the LiDAR Module’s Pixels-to-Points tool.
Over its 20-year history, Global Mapper's evolution has followed an aggressive and ambitious development path with each successive version introducing a broad array of new features and functions. The release of version 19.1 is no exception with new and enhanced capabilities throughout the application.
Highlights of this version include:
- A powerful new multivariate attribute search tool supporting advanced user-defined functions and expressions
- Consolidated attribute management with the Attribute Join and Calculate tools integrated into the new Attribute Editor window
- Expanded drag-and-drop widow docking options, with the Map Layout Editor, Coordinate Converter, and 2D Map Views now dockable around the primary map window
- An enhanced 3D Viewer, allowing the user more precise control over zooming and panning
- A new option to save Path Profiles as 3D vector line features
- Support for reading and writing LAZ (LasZip) files with the LAS 1.4 fields
The v19.1 release also includes an update to the supplementary LiDAR Module. The Pixels-to-Points tool, which is used to create a high-density 3D point cloud from overlapping UAV-collected images, now includes the option to create a 3D Mesh complete with photorealistic textures.
