Numerous significant enhancements and new features have been made to Global Mapper since v16. The most significant changes are described below. Please watch the “What’s New in version 17″ webinar (coming soon).

  • Dramatic Speed Improvements – depending on data and machine anywhere from 5 to times faster for all types of data processing and rendering
    New Cartographic Map Publishing tool including:
    • A paper scale interface that actually lets you see the layout in the paper proportions
    • Easier addition of overlays for graphics, text, legend, scale bar, north arrows etc, and positioning these elements through click and drag
    • Template creation and template library
  • New flexible view interface with dock-able windows and multiple map views for better data visualization and manipulation
  • Several new built-in online sources, including US National Map sources (w/ 1 foot color imagery source), World Navigation Charts (1:1M Scale ONC Charts), and Australian water sources
  • New support for CPT palette files, both for layer color palettes and for initializing elevation shaders and updated support for PLY, PNG (added EXIF tag support), Sketchup, CPT and USGS Earth Explorer formats
  • Updated logging information now available for scripting, along with many other scripting enhancements

  • Added new GPS toolbar buttons to control whether or not the main display centers on the GPS vessel location and automatically rotates to keep the GPS heading towards the top of the display
  • Attribute Calculation now stores the previous formula for new attributes, if one exists, so that a user can have see what changes a previous formula made to an attribute .Added a new right-click option on the Feature Vertex dialog so you can easily duplicate vertices for an area feature. This allows you to use the “Pen Up” draw mode option to turn off the drawing of some segments of the area border
