Global Mapper Pro Coming Soon

Is there a tool that directly exports a .DWG map with coordinates to GEOTIFF?

    After you load your DWG file into Global Mapper, you can export it as GeoTIFF. Is that what you are trying to do? If not, please provide more details.

    Hi Bob,
    We have many *.DWG files and want to export to *.geotiff to open on webmap application. Im looking for a suitable software to include in my current data process. 
    The data type I want to use to export is  (to *geotiff). GeoTIFF image output is keep a style of file CAD.

    DWG files can look very different in Global Mapper compared the same file(s) opened in AutoCAD, especially if it has multiple layouts. If you are happy with your imported file then you can export it to GeoTIFF using Global Mapper.

    If you need to preserve the exact appearance of the original Layout; as seen after plotting, then I would plot the files to PDF with AutoCAD or Civil3D first. Then import the PDF into Global Mapper, choosing Import PDF as raster image. You would need to georeference the image before exporting it to GeoTIFF.
