Global Mapper v25.0

Significant Digits when using the Feature Info tool

Good day!

I was wondering if there is a setting to have the feature info tool always display the area for a polygon with two significant digits. Once the area becomes greater than five digits, it is being rounded to the nearest whole number.

Thank you!

    Global Mapper does not have a setting that controls the number of digits after the decimal in the Feature Information tool.  I assume that you are interested in having a minimum of two significant digits, so that a small number like 0.0034 does not get rounded down to 0.00.  Is this correct?


  • That's correct. Just wanted to confirm that there wasn't a checkbox somewhere I was missing.

    Thank you!
