One of the great things about running Global Mapper Forum.com is seeing the happy and dedicated following that Global Mapper receives. I have enjoyed witnessing the interaction between the support team and customers. In fact, some might say that this ability to listen and respond to customers is one of Global Mapper's best features.
There has also been some concern expressed about how Global Mapper's acquisition will affect future support and product direction .

As a mapper concentrated on tourist maps I'm finishing maps with a NON GIS (drawing) software (CorelDRAW). However the core of the WorkFlow system is GlobalMapper. In order to make that WorkFlow workable and to preserve finished maps carthometry I had to develop my own system called "transfer-frames" on both ends. I'm interesting how others deal with this subject. Perhaps we could learn more one from another. PLS share Yours concepts.
You can find my own WorkFlowDiagram right here
