There is another and perhaps more pecise way.
!. Create your grid from the xyz data
2. Reopen the same xyz file, but this time as points
3. Select all the points with the digitiser tool
4. Right click and select "Advanced feature creation options" and then create "coverage area...."
5. Select the created polygon with the digitiser tool and then open the options for the grid.
6. Select the cropping tab and then "crop to currently selected polygon".
You could try using the LAYER function to turn your layers into KML folders.
RIght click on the DWG group
Click LAYER then click Calc/Copy Attribute Values
In the "Attribute Calculation Setup" box, input KML_FOLDER in the box for "Select Existing or Create New Attibute to Assign Calculated Values to:"
For Source Attribute, use <Feature Layer Name>
For Operation, use Copy Source Attribute to New Attribute
Click "Calculate" at the bottom of the box.
Now export the DWG group to KML again. When you open it in GE, there should be a folder in each layer.
I'm running into a new issue after creating a dual Windows 7/Windows Vista system in that my main C: drive now only has about 27GB available to work with...
I'm noticing when importing a directory full of data the c: drive is filling up and then the whole process falls over once the hard drive is full...
I've looked in the GM menus and also the main GM folder to see if there's a way to set the cache/scratch disk and I haven't come across anything...
Is there a way to define a disk to use as a scratch disk or is there a way that can be added to GM11?
This is currently governed by a registry setting:
* Navigate to the key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Global Mapper"
* Look for the value named "3DModelImportPromptForSettings", which will have a value of "0". Change it to "1" and you should get 3D File Import Options dialog back.
Please let us know if this doesn't work for you.
If you have a terrain grid loaded in Global Mapper you can export it to several 3D DXF formats using the File->Export->Export Elevation Data menu command. Hopefully one of those will work for you.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

The format for the slope attribute can not be changed by the user at this time, nor can the slope percent be split out into a separate attribute by the Calculate Elev/Slope Statistics function. I have added feature request #22986 so we can evaluate adding additional formatting options in a future release of Global Mapper. We will post a message on this thread when the status of the request changes.
In the meantime, you can use the Attribute Calculator to split the slope percent into a separate attribute.
- Use the Digitizer to select the features you want to modify
- Right-click and choose Attribute Style Functions | Calculate/Copy Attributes for Feature Selection. The Attribute Calculation Setup dialog will be displayed.
- Use SLOPE_PCT (or another name of your choosing) for the new attribute to be added
- Select the Use Formula Calculation option
- In the formula field, paste clip(search(SLOPE,"\d*.\d*%"), "", "%"). (The formula searches the string for a number followed by a percent sign, then clips off the percent sign. See Global Mapper help for more information.)
- Click the Calculate button
The zoom to location feature could certainly be useful, and I have opened an enhancement request for this (22618).
We are currently in the early planning phases of Global Mapper Mobile 2.0. We would be very interested to know more about what features you, and others, would find useful and how you would like to use the application in your work. You may post your suggestion here or submit them to directly to BMG support via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
