  • turn off progress % when runing GMscript under dos command

    Hello,

    Those messages don't seem to be particularly useful, so I have modified the code to suppress them.  The change will be available in Global Mapper 18.2, which is due out in the next couple of weeks.   Keep an eye out for it.

    Cheers,
    Bob

  • how to import 16bits image and define as raster image ?

    Hello,

    You will need to use the LOAD_FLAGS parameter.  LOAD_FLAGS contains flags for any import options that you were prompted for when loading the file, such as if you have a .tif file that you were prompted to select as elevation or raster. To see how to set these if you are writing a script, load a file with the settings that you want in the main user interface and then save a workspace. Open the workspace file in a text editor and examine the IMPORT command for that file and see how the LOAD_FLAGS were set.

    Cheers,

  • LiDAR point import - return number and total number of return (2 out of 3) - LAS export

    Hello,

    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, along with sample data, if possible, to Blue Marble Geographics Support (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).  Either of these methods will ensure that the support team sees the problem and that you get a timely response.

    Cheers,

  • How to combine multiple .mbtiles files into single one ? (purpose is to web upload)

    Hello,

    From that image, it is difficult to be sure, but it appears that you are exporting a large area (most of which is blank) at a high resolution, and exporting a lot of zoom levels.  Here is another approach that should work:
    1. Load one of the layers.
    2. File -> Export -> Export Web Format..., and choose MBTiles
    3. Tiling Options: Set your zoom levels, and other options
    4. MBTiles Options: Remove check next to "Delete Intermediate Tile Files", and choose a Location directory.
    5. Click OK to perform the export
    6. Load the other layer
    7. File -> Export -> Export Web Format..., and choose MBTiles
    8. Tiling Options: Set your zoom levels, and other options
    9. MBTiles Options: Remove check next to "Delete Intermediate Tile Files", and choose the same Location directory as you used above.  You may get a warning about the directory not being empty, but you can ignore it.
    10. Click OK and choose an MBTiles file name that is different from the one you used previously.  After you are done, this one should contain all of the tiles from both layers.
    Cheers,
    Bob
