Blue Marble Geographics has announced the release of version 22 of Global Mapper® along with an upgrade to the accompanying Lidar Module®.

Global Mapper is a cutting-edge GIS software application that provides both novice and experienced geospatial professionals with a comprehensive array of spatial data processing tools. It provides access to an unparalleled variety of data formats at a genuinely affordable price.

Highlights of the version 22 release include new Eye Dome Lighting settings in the 3D viewer to help improve the visual display of vector and lidar data, a new tool for simplifying meshes or TINs, a new Spatial Operations tool for analyzing the relationship between overlapping vector features, a new option to measure the overlap between two or more lidar, raster/image, and terrain layers, a new consolidated Digitizer Menu providing convenient access to all drawing and digitizing tools, and many other new features.

The Lidar Module, an optional add-on to Global Mapper, provides advanced point cloud processing tools, including Pixels to Points® for photogrammetric point cloud creation using overlapping drone-captured images, automatic and manual point cloud classification, as well as feature extraction, hydro-flattening, and more.

The upgraded Lidar Module includes a new Terrain Paint tool for manipulating elevation values in a free-form way, a new algorithm to improve building classification results, improved building extraction with better 3D shape simplification for generating building footprints, a new option to create a process summary report when using the Pixels to Points process, dramatically faster rendering of lidar path profiles with a large number of points, and much more.
