Global Mapper Pro

Multi-threaded download based on attribute field

I am often downloading LIDAR index files with tiles that include an attribute to the direct download of LIDAR data. I find that downloading these through GM takes a lot longer than exporting the list of hyperlinks and doing it through a browser. I believe this is because the browser is capable of downloading multiple files at once, while GM is only doing it sequentially. It would be fantastic if this could be fixed so that the software can download multiple links simultaneously. Thanks!

    You are correct, the download of files from feature attributes is done sequentially rather than in multiple threads at a time. I've added a new todo item (GM-13338) so that we can update Global Mapper to download multiple files at a time.
