Global Mapper v24.1

Why my labels disappear while exporting tiled raster?


we are experiencing an issue while exporting tiled raster data (such as google map tiles). We have problems with labeled vector data. It appears that if it does not fit into a tile is is not drawn, hence some labels are completely missing from our export.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thank you.

    This is a known issue in Global Mapper (bug number 15062).

    Currently the recommended workaround is to first export the vector layer with the labels to a single large raster image, like a GeoTFF, that covers the entire export area and with a high enough resolution that the text looks nice. Make sure the GeoTIFF has transparency enabled. Then unload the text layer and load the GeoTIFF with the labels back in, then export to the tiled format.
