I have a geotiff file and what i want is to convert this raster file into a vector file. Is it possible with Global Mapper. Or else is there any other way

    Hi!

    I have used this service http://vectormagic.com/home for regular raster to vector conversion. However I am not sure if it works with rasterdata (if it is an orthophoto you have I am sure it will not work, however if it is a more like a "map drawn by vectors" you might have more success). Good luck!

    While you can't really automatically vectorize a raster map in Global Mapper, there is an option to create area features from equal colors by right-clicking on a map in the Control Center and select the option to create equal-value areas. This works for vectorizing things like land-cover maps, but isn't useful for roads and points.

    Thanks,

    Mike
