Global Mapper Pro

customize profile display?

JSL Global Mapper UserTrusted User

I have several DEMs that I'm generating a profile on, and I'm wondering if there's a way to make each profile line a different color, and to fill in areas between lines with more than one color? Right now, the highest DEM in the Control Center is showing up as a red dotted line, and the other two are blue dotted lines. I can change the color of the fill under the second highest DEM, but not any of the others.

    That's a good idea, thanks.


  • Hi JSL.

    Yes you can certainly do what you ask. Simply right click on your profile (anywhere) and select "Specify Style / Colour for Terrain Layer"then select your layer and apply the line weight, type, colour etc. that you require. See attached screen grabs.

    Thanks for that information, that makes it easy to change the line color. I see options for changing the background color and one terrain layer, but is there any way to add a third area color between two profile lines?

  • Hi JSL,

    No, not that I know of. Perhaps export it into another program and add a colour block manually...?
