Global Mapper SDK v16.1 Released with Faster Display of Online Data Sources

Global Mapper is an affordable and easy-to-use GIS application capable of displaying, converting, and analyzing virtually any type of geospatial data. This release features a variety of updates to both the standard Global Mapper SDK product and the advanced LiDAR SDK product. With the Global Mapper SDK, developers can leverage these powerful functions from within their own software applications, saving time and money in the development process. The SDK includes both native 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs, which can be utilized in any Windows operating system.

The version 16.1 release features multiple enhancements to speed up online data source display and exports as well as a new GM_GetOnlineSourceInfo function to retrieve detailed information about the source and check if the server is accessible. This release also features support for several new file formats, including loading directly from .7z archives and support for Landmark Graphics Vector, ZFS LiDAR, ArcGIS Layer Pack (.lpk), Rockworks XML Grid, and Carlson Grid/Geoid files. Exports to new image files using image-optimized palettes for data containing more than 256 unique colors have been improved, allowing users to maintain the exact original colors for large areas in the original image.

“We encourage all geospatial programmers to take a look at the Global Mapper SDK,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. “Whether you’re looking for additional functionality for your software product or a custom project, the tool is powerful and easy-to-use, and for LiDAR, there is nothing like it on the market today.”

Additionally, there are many improvements to the advanced LiDAR analysis features such as automated building and vegetation classification, feature extraction, and building height calculations for more streamlined processing and improved output.
