  • Hello, The IMPORT command has several parameters that can be used to georeference a raster image.  It sounds like GCP_FILENAME is the parameter you would need.  You don't indicate what version of Global Mapper you are using.  The link is for Global…
  • Hi Aaron, That sounds like a bug.  I suggest that you send a description of your workflow and results (you can send a link to this forum thread) to Blue Marble Geographics support via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).  That will get your issue in…
  • gisdhan said: We are using GM v18 and plan to soon upgrade to v19. Could you please advise if the attribute table functionality has been implemented or will be a part of v19? Shifting between GM & other desktop GIS to view attributes is p…
  • Hello, I have added your information to our existing feature request (#19237) for this function. Copy attributes between line features is a bit more difficult as there isn't an obvious geometry relationship, like areas that can contain or overlap o…
  • Hello Andrea, If you don't get a response here, you should try sending a formal support request via the Help->Send Support Request... menu in Global Mapper, or by sending and e-mail containing a description of your workflow and the error message…
  • Hello, Please report this directly to Blue Marble Geographics Support via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com), and include the GPX file that is causing the problem.  I seem to recall that some GPX files can have colons in the attribute names (you ca…
  • Hello, For upgrade questions, you should contact our Sales team directly via e-mail (sales@bluemarblegeo.com).  They will have the answers to these and related questions. Cheers, Bob
  • Jake said: Does V19 have this? This has not been implemented yet. Cheers, Bob
  • Francki said: Indeed, GeoOdk doesn't like GM Mbtile's. It's a pity because GeoOdk is well known for land survey's. Furthermore, TileMill interface's is not user friendly, and it is not well maintained.  Hello, Have you been in touch with …

  • schlenn said: Thanks Bob for the reply. Description and sample files are above. I thought support is reading and helping here, because this is the official forum? Or is this a user to user forum and for an official answer better to contact …
  • Hello, If you are not getting a timely response on the forum, I recommend that you contact Blue Marble Geographics Support directly via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).  Please provide a detailed description of your work flow and results, along …
  • Hello, krabill said: Hello, Digging up an old thread here.  I would like to add myself to the list of users requesting .mb56 support.  Your name has been added to the feature request.  Thank you. Cheers, Bob
  • Hello, I think this is a bug that has been fixed.  I recommend that you download the latest version of Global Mapper.  If the problem persists in the latest version, please send a description of your workflow, a copy of your data (if possible), and…
  • Hello, You can use the EXPORT_WEB script command in a batch export of MBTiles data.  If you are new to Global Mapper scripting, we have an introductory, prerecorded webinar here. Cheers, Bob
  • Hello, I recommend that you report this directly to Blue Marble Geographics support via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).  Please provide a detailed description of your workflow and results, along with sample data that will reproduce the problem.…
  • Hello, To get slope and slope direction, use Analysis/Measurement | Calculate Elevation/Slope Stats for Selected Features. Cheers, Bob
  • Mykle said: Thanks Bob!  I usually watch the Discussions list for updates, but that requires more of a commitment.  That is what I do also.  Not as good as getting a notification, but works pretty well. Cheers, Bob
  • Hello, When you set up a database connection in ArcGIS, I recall that it saves a file with a .sde extension somewhere in the ArcGIS user data.  You can select that file via the File | Open Data File(s) menu item in Global Mapper to open the databas…
  • Hello, Unfortunately, according to our System Administrator, the current forum hosting configuration precludes sending those notifications to users who are not Administrators.  If we come up with a creative solution to get around this limitation, w…
  • Amanda McDermott said: Thanks Mykle, yes my only options are the same as yours, as far as I am aware. I see another section below General called Category Notifications.   Presumably, it is related to my user status.  I will pass this alo…
  • Amanda McDermott said: I had found that - but all of the options are to do with discussions I've participated in etc. I would like to also be notified of new discussions that get started that I haven't had anything to do with yet (and then I …
  • Hello, At the top of the forum, on the far right there is a gear icon (Account Options).  Click that icon and choose Edit Profile.  On the Edit Profile screen, near the top on the right, choose Notification Preferences.  That will bring up a screen…
  • Hello, I recommend that you send a detailed description of your workflow and results (including a screen capture of your view shed options), along with your data, if possible, to Blue Marble Geographics Support (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).  This wi…
  • Hello, In the Select Online Data Source to Download screen under WORLDWIDE DATA, you could try one of the OpenStreetMap.org options.  Some of those provide non-traditional map styles. Cheers, Bob
  • Swoody said: All I really wanted to do was search by coordinates.  Later I was wanting to create a point at that spot, so that I could figure out why the address search wasn't actually taking me to the correct spot I was searching for. (I nee…
  • Swoody said: But I still have the question -  how can I just do a search using coordinates  -- or do I always have to go the extra step of creating a point to get there?  Thanks! I guess I am not  understanding what you want to do.  Are you j…
  • Hello, With the Digitizer active, right-click and choose Create Point/Text Features | POINT AT POS from the context menu.  This will bring up a window allowing you to type in the coordinates for your point. Cheers, Bob
  • eddie416 said: I actually want to load 1 lidar file, then 1 corresponding shapefile then export 1 time. Then I want it to move onto the next lidar file and shapefile. I know there are a few ways I could do this, but I'm wondering if nested lo…

  • Hello, When you are exporting a shapefile, the INC_ELEV_ATTR does not work the same was as the EXPORT_ELEV parameter, which is supported only for text file exports.  INC_ELEV_ATTR will export an elevation parameter (typically called ELEVATION) if i…
  • Hello, Can you be more specific about what you are trying to do and what part of the output is not correct? Cheers, Bob
