Global Mapper Pro

Global Mapper Mobile Display error

I have a Generated Grid of elevation values created from LiDAR data. The grid is displayed with shaded relief (Atlas Shader) which is necessary to highlight the surface detail. When I export this layer using File: Export: Export Global Mappper Mobile File and load it onto my iPad the image looks like the original LIDAR data without the shader data and thus lacks the detail I need. To verify it was exported correctly, I opened the exported file using the desktop app and it is displayed correctly. Only the Mobile App displays it incorrectly.

How do I retain the shader data from the desktop app on my mobile app?

    Global Mapper Mobile only supports the basic atlas shader at this time, i.e. no hill shading. We do have an open ticket to add shader options in a future release (GMM-324). I will add a reference to this thread. In the meantime, a possible workaround would be to export your grid with the desired shading as a raster image, and then use that as the base map in your gmmp.
