Scalable Symbols

Symbols need to be flexible in size, and the text labels need to be able to be shifted manually to avoid overlap with closely spaced symbols with labels.

    Any updates on this? Are proportional (scaled) symbols part of GM as of today? Can they be scaled based on an attribute?

    We are planning on adding support for more advanced symbol management, including vectorized and scalable symbols, in the v11 release this summer.

    Thanks,

    this might be a stretch, but would it be possible to make symbols size for a point driven by some attribute of the feature? or change symbol color or type based on an attribute?

    Actually if you provide an attribute with a name like SYMBOL and a value equal to a symbol name in Global Mapper or one of a number of special symbol names including color and size then you can have symbols assigned automatically on import. See http://globalmapper.com/helpv10/GenericASCIIFormat_FieldOptions.doc for details.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
