Global Mapper Pro

No Bearing Measurements from Line Features

naugustin Global Mapper UserTrusted User

I want to measure the lenghts and bearings of hundreds of hand picked fault-lines in a given shape file. Now I´m facing the weird problem that bearings are not given out from not all of the lines - see screenshot attached. Even worse is, when I try to open the file on an other machine with  Global Mapper (same version, same build number) then I´m not getting any bearings at all.

Any idea what can be wrong here?

    Can you provide more details about your workflow?

    Are the lengths and bearings in the file already as attributes, or are they being calculated by Global Mapper for this display? Did you use the Analysis/Measurement | Add/Update the Measure Attributes of Selected Feature(s)?  If you added the measure attributes, and it did not put the attributes on all of your selected features, that would be a bug. If you added measure attributes, you would have to export the file before the attributes would be visible on another computer (unless you calculated them there also.)
