Blue Marble Releases Global Mapper 14 with Multiple New Tools Including Spatial Database Support

Global Mapper 14 also includes many new usability enhancements including a reorganization of the Digitizer tool right-click menus by categories based on functionality.   There is also a new customizable Favorites menu for quick access to Digitizer tool functionality, organization of import and export options, along with a new Terrain Analysis menu.  The Terrain Analysis menu includes contour grid generation, the ability to combine surfaces, and watershed generation along with two new tools for finding ridge lines and calculating the volume between two surfaces.  Many new formats are added with this release, including support for writing CADRG/CIB, ASRP images and reading/writing Garmin JNX format files

“This is our first major release of Global Mapper since the acquisition last year,” stated Blue Marble’s President Patrick Cunningham.  “Of course we are very excited about this release as it has been an opportunity to begin to combine two great software companies and expand the power of affordable GIS software.  We’ve worked closely with Global Mapper users and with Mike Childs to enhance the tool in a way that complements all that it was before we stepped in.  We hope we have achieved that goal.”

Along with the support for seven types of spatial databases and the ability to consume WFS (Web Feature Services) and WMTS (Web Map Tile Services) Global Mapper can both publish and consume massive amounts of data.  Delivering a tool with a total file format support of around 200 formats, at a starting price of less than four hundred dollars makes it a truly complementary utility for any GIS toolbox.
