Hi Mike,

How can I get the shortest distance between a selected line or area and points.

    Fabien,

    There really isn't an automatic way to get that in Global Mapper. If you are using the SDK, you could write an algorithm to check the distance between each vertex of both features and the other feature to find the minimum distance between them (it should be at a vertex unless the features intersect).

    Thanks,

    Mike
