GeoPDF Vector Functionality

Hi all,

I have a GeoPDF I need to extract a boundary area from. The boundary is on a seperate layer in the PDF, and thus I'm assuming should somehow be able to be extracted and converted to a vector format. Is there any functionality in GM v13 to do this?? The alternative is just digitizing a boundary over top of the PDF in Global Mapper, but this method will lose the precision of the original. Any tips?

    There isn't currently any way to extract vector features from a GeoPDF in Global Mapper. While you can load the PDF with just that layer displayed, it still comes in as just a rendered image and doesn't have any vector features, so digitizing that line would be the best you could do if you can't get the data in a different format, like Shapefile.
