  • How do I rectify 64 layers with WGS projection to a site grid of Northings and Eastings

  • How to convert / reproject MGI map to WGS84?

    This is comparison of the layers from the same view as promised. As you can see they are in the right location and your point should be correct. The island/sand bar is below the water in the aerial imagery.

  • Labeling by feature order (Index in Layer)

    I'm using Global Mapper v14.2 (yes, I know, it's very old).

    I have a series of line features that I've ordered by selecting, cutting, and pasting them back to the original layer. This allow me to set the order in the layer so that when I export the SHP file, the associated DBF file has those features in order. (the last cut/paste becomes the last record in my DBF file.

    I've noticed using Search (binoculars) tool in GM, that there is an attribute at the far right of the table that gives <Index in Layer>, showing the order I created.

    Is it possible to use this attribute within GM for labeling, rather than modifying the DBF file and adding that attribute, then reloading the SHP or GMW file? Index doesn't appear as an attribute option in the pulldown menu in labeling options, and I'm not sure if can make it one within GM.

  • Create line segments from polygons using coincident boundary with another polygon? (Lake parcels)

    I tried a workaround with partial success. I converted the parcels to line features first, then created a small buffer from the lake polygon with a 0.1m offset (could be less though). I used this buffer with the Crop command to remove the lines outside the buffer. This leaves just the lines you need but with the 0.2m additional length per line. The only issue was that there were a few lines that were split for some reason.

  • How to convert / reproject MGI map to WGS84?

    Assuming all your data is loaded with the correct coordinate system, you just need to switch your projection from MGI Balkzan Zone 7 to Geographic (Latitude/Longitude).

    1. Click on Configure (Spanner)
    2. Projection
    3. Choose Geographic (Latitude/Longitude) for the Projection
    4. Choose WGS84 for the Datum
    5. Choose ARC DEGREES for the Planar Units

  • Divides area into sub-areas using lines

    Hello,

    Did you try first converting your "island" line features to area features, then cutting them from the areas that enclose them to create islands? Once you do that, cropping the areas by line features will take the islands into account.

    Cheers,

  • Question on Web Map Services (WMS) | BGS Geology 50k

    Worked for me once zoomed within the correct scale range as noted on the site. 


    "The service supports the British National Grid and Lat/Long WGS84 coordinate systems and the data is visible when zoomed in between 1:100 000 and 1:25 000 scale."


    Also note that it will not work if you add the expanded 'child level' Data Layers if that makes sense. Just add the parent level data layers.


    For clarity DO NOT add the child level data layer <STYLE> GBR BGS 1:50k Bedrock
    Instead add the parent level data layer GBR BGS 1:50k Bedrock

  • Identify terrain layers in Path Profile

    Hi folks,

    Looks like the legend that distinguishes among different terrain lines was added to Global Mapper a bit over a year ago, so it probably first appeared in GM 20.1 or so. You need to have two or more terrain layers loaded, and the following settings checked in the Path Profile Settings dialog:
    • "Draw separate line for path from each terrain layer"
    • "Draw legend when drawing separate layer lines"
    You should see a legend appear in the Path Profile display, and you can drag it around the view to a convenient location. It's not otherwise configurable. A more complete overview of the path profile settings is here: https://www.bluemarblegeo.com/knowledgebase/global-mapper-21/Path_Profile/PathProfile_settings.htm.

    Here's a sample:



    Hope that this helps & sorry for the delay in responding.Thanks for the suggestion.

  • Digitize Line in Profile View

    I imagine being able to draw a 3d polyline on a profile view. This 3d line would then be saved as an object. This would be very useful when creating terrain from very vegetated pointclouds.

    This is what I mean more or less:
