Blue Marble's GIS software is used by hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers throughout the world who need affordable, user-friendly, yet powerful GIS solutions. Users come from a wide range of industries including software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government departments and academic institutions.
Illustrating the ever-increasing importance of 3D data, version 19.1 of Global Mapper includes an enhanced 3D Viewer, allowing the user more precise control over the process of zooming and panning. The popular Path Profile tool now includes the option to capture the linear path of a profile line as a 3D vector line feature. Used in conjunction with the Perpendicular Profile function, this can be used to create a stunning three-dimensional representation of the terrain displayed as a series of parallel 3D lines.
"Version 19.1 of Global Mapper is considered a minor release but this is not borne out in the extensive list of new and upgraded functionality," stated Blue Marble's President, Patrick Cunningham. "Our development team has been working flat out to incorporate many of the features and functions requested by the growing Global Mapper community. We are especially excited about the ability to export and render the path profile as a 3D line providing even more scope for 3D analysis and modeling."
Also included in the 19.1 release is a powerful addition to the Pixels-to-Points tool. Included with the supplementary LiDAR Module, Pixels-to-Points is used to create a high-density 3D point cloud from overlapping UAV-collected images. New in the 19.1 release is the option to create a 3D Mesh complete with photorealistic textures.
