Global Mapper SDK v15.2 Featuring Updates to Online Data Access

The Global Mapper SDK provides a Windows DLL, which allows software developers to include much of the functionality of Global Mapper within their own applications. The SDK includes both native 32-bit and 64-bit DLL’s, which can be implemented in any Windows operating system. This release features an updated online data library with additional built-in online sources as well as a new method of data organization. Now there are multiple levels of groupings, faster display of online data, and additional built-in online sources. This update offers software developers the option to include a more robust and organized library of free online data in their own software.

The 15.2 release also includes the ability to accurately transform coordinates in a LiDAR point cloud. The SDK previously included the ability to reproject a LiDAR point cloud but with the additional support developers can now provide advanced transformation functionality such as shift, rotate, and scale. This is done using a file-based coordinate-to-coordinate transformation and includes via .gm_xform files. Additionally, many new file types have been added including support for the viewing of 3D models from Collada DAE files. This enhancement is further evidence of Blue Marble’s commitment to advancing 3D technology in the Global Mapper platform.
