Blue Marble Releases Global Mapper 14.2 with Many New Scripting Tools

The Global Mapper 14.2 release introduces many scripting updates and additions, including support for calculating attributes, splitting layers, interactively prompting users for files and folders, to name just a few.  Global Mapper is a great tool for behind the scenes processing, whether it is simply batch data conversion or complex extract, transform and load processes such as attribute or geometry merging, clipping or editing.  Users can find scripting samples with Global Mapper documentation, with the ability to edit and create them in any text editor.  To make this work more easily, Global Mapper workspace files also can be saved as scripts.

The 14.2 release also includes many LiDAR enhancements such as search by elevations and the ability to color by return value, which allows users to easily see when there are multiple return values. This feature is excellent for performing vegetation analysis.  There are also new point loading slider bar and reporting tools for point cloud density. 14.2 also has improved import and export options as well as support for exporting point clouds to DXF and DWG format files.  14.2 also introduces support for the new MrSID format files and exporting XYZI (XYZ + Intensity) files, typically from LiDAR data.

“Certainly we are focused on continuing to expand our support for LiDAR and more geospatial formats,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham.  “But this release has some great new scripting capabilities and we like to remind our users that Global Mapper is a powerful extract, transform and load tool as well.”
