I updated the calculation to get the average aspect as well even if there isn't a dominant direction and add an AVG_ASPECT attribute. That one will always be there, whereas ASPECT will only be there when there is a dominant direction.
I have placed new builds with the latest changes at the links below:
Simply download the .zip file for the build that you are using and extract over your existing installation files. The likely locations to extract to are as follows:
32-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\GlobalMapper16
64-bit: C:\Program Files\GlobalMapper16_64bit

You can add 3D distance attributes to selected lines using Analysis/Measurement > Calculate Elevation/Slope Stats for Selected Feature(s) and choosing NO - Sample Terrain Along Path to get the 3D distance data from your terrain . Once added you can use the Feature Info Tool to get 3D distances or view the data via the Attribute Editor.
After you calculate the volume measurements, export the data to a CSV file (there will be a button on the Feature Measurement Information screen to do this). After that, you can select the layer and use the Layer | JOIN Attribute Table/File to Layer function to add the attributes to the features.
When i batch convert a ton of las files, the first file retains my export settings, then the rest will revert to only using ground points. I have over 2000+ las files i want to convert into GMG files. If i convert each one individually they come out as i need them to. How do i write a script to batch export each all these files to a Global Mapper Grid file and they retain my inintial settings. I am using v17.2. Thanks
IMPORT_DIR_TREE DIRECTORY="C:\XYZ_Ascii_1m\" TYPE=ELEVATION COORD_DELIM=AUTO PROJ_FILENAME="C:\XYZ_Ascii_1m\lidar.prj"
This line above doesn't work for the multiple files in the directory. I receive the "select overlay type" window pop-up, and even after I select "ASCII text" from the list it returns "no overlays could be loaded from file" for each of the xyz files in the folder.
IMPORT_ASCII FILENAME="C:\XYZ_Ascii_1m\lidar.xyz" TYPE=ELEVATION COORD_DELIM=AUTO PROJ_FILENAME="C:\XYZ_Ascii_1m\lidar.prj"
However, this line with individual ASCII file works as expected.
