Using Global Mapper for Animation

Hi,

I'm new and we are attempting to create a geographical animation (change in a given geographic landscape over time) but we don't know if Global Mapper has this capability. Does anyone know if it's possible to automate the creation of perhaps 400 frames of geographical data and then string them together to end up with a smooth animation in the end? If not, can anyone direct us to software that might? Thanks!

Daniel

    Daniel,

    Global Mapper does not have the ability to create animations, although with the scripting language you could perhaps build your 400 separate frame images, then use some other software to put that together into an animation or movie file.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    What Daniel's question is exactly what I had before, since I work with hydraulic run-up model onto land (for tsunami). what then I did was, I use GM to reproduce 3D pictures and save it one by one as bmp files (SRTM data overlay with IKONOS, again overlay with 'water' resulted by tsunami model)--doing manually was inconvinient of course, and then using others tools (software) making as a video movie...it is nice if GM for future also has animation tool created from 2D/3D images like Time Slider add in of arcGIS....tx
