  • delete duplicate lidar points

    SOLVED: This is yet another lidar limitation of the GM scripting language. The DELETE_DUPLICATES functionality only works on vector layers, and will not work with lidar. A ticket was opened for it, #16857, but no workaround has been noted.

  • Gridding and Contouring options

    Global Mapper v19.1.0 (b021218) (355) [64-bit] [+LIDAR] - REGISTERED
    I am using GM to contour drone collected point clouds which involves a lot (a lot!) of iterations of point cloud cleaning, gridding, and contouring and have a few feature suggestions/requests:

    1. Retain all of the options selected in the Create Elevation Grid and Create Contours dialog boxes to be persistent, so the next time you open them the options last used are there.  Especially the "Grid Bounds" and "Contour Bounds". Currently in Gridding, the grid spacing always reverts to Auto.  In Create Contours the Contour interval,  x and y axis, the checkbox for "Discard Closed Lines Shorter than X meters" (while we're at it, it would be nice to have this value in the current display units rather than always in meters)

    2. Allow selection of the Cropping Area feature within the dialog box under  Contour Bounds and Grid Bounds.  Almost every time I open one of the dialog boxes, i have to close it and go select my Cropping Area feature and then reopen it because forgot to select it again.  Better yet, also retain that cropping setting from the last time the dialog box was opened.

    3. Include the Grid and Contour generation settings that were used to generate them in the metadata of the resultant feature layer, including the time and date.  Perhaps even include the feature layers that were used as input data to create them too.
    An option to include them in the name of the feature would be handy too.  For example, I typically name them something like "Grid 5/2 1:44 2x2 ND 16.1"  for a grid created May 2 at 1:44pm with 2x2 spacing and No Data set to 16.1, and "Cont 5/2 1:50 2x2 Disc 2.5 s=.010"   The time is there so I know which grid version I made it from.

    Thanks!

  • Creating a surface with the same shape as the terrain

    Above advice is good, but I take it a step further by converting the elevation grid to points and then creating a bounding box that's point-to-point from that.  Prevents the weird triangles from being created along the edge of the cropping polygon.

  • Edit point cloud in 3D View

    Is this still being considered? Would like to see it still.

  • Creating a surface with the same shape as the terrain

    Would creating a boundary box work? Then you can edit the elevations of the vertices to your constant altitude.

    Boundary boxes can be created in the Control Center (right-click menu: Layers -> BBOX/Coverage).

  • Is there any way to download data from this arcgis source into Global Mapper?

    I'd love to be able to get data from the following URL into Global Mapper. I've done everything I know how to do (which isn't much, admittedly) without luck. Is there any way to do this?

  • Poin name not displaying correctly when imported

    Hello,

    What version of Global Mapper are you using?

    Here is something that might help in Global Mapper 20.1:
    1. Double-click on your layer in the Control Center. This will bring up the Vector Options window.
    2. Click the Labels tab
    3. Under "Attribute Label Format Options", remove the check-mark next to "Automatically Format Numeric Attribute Values"
    4. Click OK
    Cheers,

  • Love the new features for map layouts in V20 but please could you add the overview map to the list

    Hello,

    I have added your information to our feature request to add an overview/inset map to the Map Layout Editor.  We will post a message on this thread when the status of the request changes.

    Cheers,
