  • tools for calculating volume

    Our company would find a dedicated tool for this very useful in our offices across the world. For instance, placing a point and getting global mapper to fill within the 'basin' to a specific elevation. We perform a lot of analysis for Tailings Facilities so having the ability to model a dam and then compute the capacity behind it would be awesome.

    On that subject, having the ability to create a dam from a Line Feature would also be amazing too. We would need to enter the crest width, crest elevation and upstream and downstream slope parameters.

    Our consultancy has several Hydro and Geotechnical team members all over the world using Global Mapper that would also find additional tools very useful!

  • How to convert / reproject MGI map to WGS84?

    This is comparison of the layers from the same view as promised. As you can see they are in the right location and your point should be correct. The island/sand bar is below the water in the aerial imagery.

  • How to convert / reproject MGI map to WGS84?

    Assuming all your data is loaded with the correct coordinate system, you just need to switch your projection from MGI Balkzan Zone 7 to Geographic (Latitude/Longitude).

    1. Click on Configure (Spanner)
    2. Projection
    3. Choose Geographic (Latitude/Longitude) for the Projection
    4. Choose WGS84 for the Datum
    5. Choose ARC DEGREES for the Planar Units

  • Question on Web Map Services (WMS) | BGS Geology 50k

    Worked for me once zoomed within the correct scale range as noted on the site. 


    "The service supports the British National Grid and Lat/Long WGS84 coordinate systems and the data is visible when zoomed in between 1:100 000 and 1:25 000 scale."


    Also note that it will not work if you add the expanded 'child level' Data Layers if that makes sense. Just add the parent level data layers.


    For clarity DO NOT add the child level data layer <STYLE> GBR BGS 1:50k Bedrock
    Instead add the parent level data layer GBR BGS 1:50k Bedrock
