  • 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, 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
  • Hello, You are importing your Lidar data during every iteration of the VAR_LOOP.  Is that what you intended?   I suspect that you want to load it once, then export 4 times (once using each shapefile).  If that is the case, you need to move the IMP…

  • Hello, Using Global Mapper 18.2, I ran the test script below, and it worked exactly as expected. DIR_LOOP_START DIRECTORY="P:\CSV\" FILENAME_MASKS="*.CSV" RECURSE_DIR=NO VAR_LOOP_START VAL_START=1 VAL_STOP=3 VAL_STEP=1 VAR_NAME="%LOOP_VAL%" L…

  • Hello, I recommend that you contact Blue Marble Geographics Support directly via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com) to resolve this issue.  Please include a detailed description of your workflow and data that they can use to reproduce the problem. …
  • Hello, I forgot to include that you also need to use one of the binning algorithms with the GRID_ALG parameter, instead of the default TIN method.  In that case, if you have some area features loaded, they will automatically be used as breaklines. …
  • Hello, GRID_USE_CONSTRAINTS =YES should produce hydro-flattening.  If you find that is not the case, I recommend that you contact Blue Marble Geographics Support directly via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com). Cheers, Bob
  • Hello, I used the Coordinate Convertor tool to convert WGS84 to NAD27, and it seemed to work.  The result matches the result I got using Global Mapper 17. Can you provide a more detailed description of your work flow and be more specific about wha…
  • Hello, Are you using the same script that is posted above?  That script does not contain an IMPORT command, so it is not loading any data.  If you are running the script via the File | Run Script... command with some data already loaded, be sure to…
