Trouble exporting online imagery
I am new to Global Mapper, and I'm having difficulty exporting the World Imagery as a raster. I understand this is a very large file with high resolution, but I'm looking to download it so that I don't need to be online to use it. Every time I try to export it, GM freezes or tells me it will take three weeks to finish. I have tried many different options including 8-bit compressed, 24-bit not compressed, etc. The only moderate success I have had is exporting it as a GM Package, but this produces a lower resolution map because I chose "Automatically choose a good zoom level." I also tried exporting as a GM Package to the best available zoom level, but that also seems to take forever. Does anyone have any suggestions for going about this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
