Hello,
First off I am very new to global mapper and am using it to scout locations to place 5 acre plots in that have uniform elevation and in 3d viewer can bring the water table up and see what it does when we get a huge rain to make sure it wont pond water. I need to be able to download elevation files becasue I wont always have an internet connection to pull them from the web. I would like to be able to download the online data source, United State Elevation Data from the Global Mapper selection list.
Thank you for your help.

    When you are connected, use the File->Export->Export Elevation Data menu command to export some chunk of the NED data to a local file that you can then use offline. You might also consider using the Terrain Analysis->Generate Watershed menu command to run flow analysis scenarios.

    Thanks,
