New Product: Global Mapper
Global Mapper, along with the accompanying LiDAR Module, is a low-cost, one-stop solution for point cloud visualization, editing, and analysis. Boasting a powerful collection of automatic point classification and feature extraction tools, this renowned software, developed by Blue Marble Geographics, provides the means to fully utilize and add value to LiDAR or other point cloud formats. Recent additions to the application’s LiDAR processing capability include a Quality Control tool for improving the vertical accuracy of LiDAR data based on surveyed ground control points, and an option to visualize point density patterns throughout the point cloud.
More than just a LiDAR processing utility, Global Mapper is a complete GIS application that combines a comprehensive array of spatial data management tools with access to an unparalleled variety of data formats. Global Mapper includes an extensive suite of vector and raster data management tools and offers a surprisingly robust collection of analysis and modeling functions, many of which have been built around the software’s renowned 3D capabilities.
Since the early 1990s, Blue Marble Geographics has been a pioneer in the development of powerful and innovative geospatial software. Widely regarded for its expertise in coordinate conversion and file format support, Blue Marble’s products also include Geographic Calculator, the paradigm for highly accurate spatial data conversion and advanced projection management as well as several SDK options that allow software developers to integrate Blue Marble technology into third party applications.
