Release Notes for Global Mapper Pro 24 Beta:

Building Multiband Imagery 

  • Location: Select desired layers, right-click on them, and select the Layers submenu, select Create Multi Band Layer From Single Band Layers

3D rendering of Area cut-outs 

Histogram Matching and Histogram Updates

  • The new Histogram Matching option is available on the Color / Contrast Adjustment tab of the Options dialog for a layer. The Options Dialog is accessible by right-clicking a layer
  • Histogram matching can only be performed on layers with the same band data type (i.e. unsigned 16-bit, unsigned 8-bit, etc.)
  • Automatic Histogram Equalization: is on the Color / Contrast Adjustment tab of the Raster Options dialog
  • The Equalize Histogram contrast adjustment mode and Histogram Matching cannot be used on the same layer at the same time
  • The Histogram tab of the Metadata dialog now generates histograms faster through Multi-Threading

Variograms and Kriging

  • These new features are located on the Analysis Menu Dropdown

Map Layout Updates

  • Arrow Call Out Shapes have been added to the Map Layout
  • With elements selected, the Right Click will no longer select unselected elements
  • Now allows inserted elements in the map layout to snap to one another for alignment

Script Builder 

  • The Script Builder Tool is available under the File Menu dropdown
  • When opened, the Script Builder automatically records actions in Global Mapper and will create a script for all successful actions possible.
  • The Script Builder creates scripts for all functions that have a Global Mapper Script Command

3D Buffer Updates and Transparency

  • A new type of Transparency is applied to 3D buffers for better visualization in 3D
  • The 3D buffers tools/options are located in the right-click menu of Selected Features > Create Volumetric Features 

Pixels-to-Points Updates

  • The added ability to calculate image overlap statistics 
  • The added ability to Delete Camera from the Manage Cameras Dialog
  • Pixel Snapping can be disabled when moving a Ground Control Point

  • Syntax: 'select' [ 'add' | 'delete' ] <layer> 'circle' 'center' <number> ',' <number> 'radius' <number> [ <units>
  • Added filter/select by MBR to spatial scripting
  • The general syntax for specifying MBRs: MBR( left, top, right, bottom ) where 'left', 'right', 'top', and 'bottom' are all coordinates in the global projection. Note that MBRs must be normalized, i.e., left <= right, and bottom <= top.
  • Added ability to invert the current selection to spatial operations selection types
  • Syntax: 'select' [ 'add' | 'delete' | 'invert' ] set-expression
  • The updated method used in Combine Operation of the Digitizer to use Spatial Operation Dissolve
  • Other various bug fixes and speedups

Raster Calculator Updates

  • Added 32-bit float as a direct multi-band option to the Raster Calculator
  • Added layer-wide statistic variables to the Raster Calculator
  • @min() @max(), @avg(), @stddev(), corresponding to layer min, max, average, and standard deviation
  • If you have reported an issue to our Support Team in an earlier version of Global Mapper, please attempt to reproduce your error.
