Global Mapper - v.15 - 05 09 2013
Poniżej zamieszczamy pełną treść oficjalnego dokumentu "What's New in GlobalMapper v 15"
zamieszczonego w pliku instalacyjnym nowej wersji programu.
Pragniemy zwrócić Państwa uwagę, iż w tej odsłonie wprowadzono pewną istotną zmianę w stosunku do poprzednich.
Polega ona na tym, że poza podstawowym rdzeniem programu - skupiającym się na głównych funkcjach, wprowadzono trzy moduły opcjonalne, przeznaczone dla tych Użytkowników, którym szczególnie na ich funkcjonalności zależy. Z jednej strony odchodzimy więc od dotychczasowej koncepcji All-in-one, do której Użytkownicy byli przyzwyczajeni, z drugiej wyspecjalizowane moduły kierowane są do specyficznego odbiorcy, którego praca wymaga dodatkowych narzędzi w konkretnej dziedzinie.

Cóż zatem sam twórca Global Mapper mówi na ten temat:

"
The new modules will not remove any functionality that you had in v14.2 and move it to one of the add-on modules.
T
he modules are for new stuff not in the normal Global Mapper v14.2, especially related to LIDAR.
The OTF extension is for a special military format that almost no one outside the Army will care about.
The GEM module is what used to be in Global Energy Mapper and will also have the vertical datum conversion support if you have a Geographic Calculator license as well.
There will be a separate announcement about the GEM stuff later.
I have also fixed the issue with extensions trying to update a config file in the .exe path. I'll post a new beta installer later today.

Thanks,

Mike

WHAT'S NEW IN Global Mapper v15.1
including What's New in GM v. 15.0

Significant New Features
Added support for loading data from and exporting data to MS SQL Server Spatial databases.
The spatial database import and export dialogs now have an option for MS SQL Server.
Updated the Raster Calculator to support calculations from elevation grid layers. You can now apply any custom formula to loaded terrain layers to create a new terrain layer. The layer may actually be a grid of other non-elevation values, like NDVI values, etc., so this opens up an entirely new set of analysis possibilities.
Dramatically sped up raster/elevation exports cropped to complex area features. For very complex areas (i.e. hundreds or thousands of vertices) the exports may be 10x as fast or even better!
Added built-in links several online sources, including all NASA GIBS (Global Imagery Browse) sources, Landsat8 imagery and Lidar data from the USGS EarthExplorer web site, and GlobCover ESA2009 Land Cover data.
Added Attribute Setup tab to Shapefile export to allow customizing exported attribute types and lengths.
Added option to generate contour lines directly from 3D TIN areas. This allows you to exactly maintain breaklines or other 3D features when you have a 3D TIN including those, such as you might save from the gridding process. There is a new Analysis menu command for generating contours from TIN areas.
Added option to 3D Path Profile to display the path from each terrain layer separately. This allows easily comparing the surface of multiple loaded terrain layers along a path. The new option is under the Display Options menu on the Path Profile dialog.
Added support for writing Adobe ISO 32000 Extensions to PDF and 3D PDF export. These are the Adobe-standard for geo-spatial PDF files. The PDF export options include a checkbox option to specify that this type of placement information should be saved.
Added new Recent File Types filter in the File->Open dialog to track commonly used file types. As you open files those you use the most often will be added to that filter. It will start with the contents of the Commonly Used Formats filter, but will adapt over time as you use the software.

New Supported Formats
Added support for loading data from and exporting data to MS SQL Server Spatial databases. The spatial database import and export dialogs now have an option for MS SQL Server.
Added support for loading generic MS Access (MDB) files with point data. You are prompted for the fields to get the coordinate data from. This works for things like GPSeismic files. Note that because there is not a 64-bit MS Access driver generally available you have to use the 32-bit Global Mapper to load these files.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for loading Leica PTS point cloud files.
Added support for loading new GvLF Lidar database format (.gvl).
Added support for exporting 3D terrain and features to U3D files.
Added support for loading ECRG (Enhanced Compressed Raster Graphics) toc.xml files.
Added support for loading new ECW v3 format.
Added support for loading Field Survey XML files from Trimble devices.
Added support for loading GML files from the Finnish Land Survey.
Added support for loading Kongsberg SIS plan format files.
Added support for loading text file listing location and bounding box of OSM tile images in format of filename and 4 bounding box columns in lat/lon.

Lidar Changes
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added additional selection option on path profile dialog with Lidar points shown to select by drawing a polygon.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for loading Leica PTS point cloud files.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added option when batch converting to Lidar LAS/LAZ files to apply color from loaded imagery.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Made searching by HEIGHT_ABOVE_GROUND attribute possible in vector search dialog.
Added built-in links to online Lidar data from the USGS and other US agencies under new Lidar group in online source dialog. The USGS National Lidar Dataset is linked to via EarthExplorer. The bounds you specify will automatically be sent to the EarthExplorer site for easy download.
Made batch converting Lidar point clouds with RGB colors to new LAS/LAZ files automatically include the colors in the output files.
Updated Digitizer Tool option to count points inside selected area features to count Lidar point cloud points.
Added option to render Lidar points by the point source ID. In addition the point source ID is available as a SOURCE_ID attribute and can be searched on and you can choose to load just a particular source ID when loading Lidar files.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Allow adding favorites toolbar option to set any Lidar classification from 0-20 so you can add 1 click (or keyboard shortcut) access to reclassify selected Lidar points to any classification that you need.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added option to automatic classification of ground points to reset any pre-existing ground points to unclassified for the operation. This is useful if you want to re-run the operation with different parameters and start from scratch.
Correct Lidar point classifications between 10 and 17 to match ASPRS definitions (for example 10 is Rail, not Bridge, and Bridge is 17). Also added classification code 18 for High Noise points.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Fixed binned gridding of Lidar data after load from Analysis menu to obey a bin spacing provided in current projection units rather than as a multiple of native point spacing.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Improved automatic classification of ground points for multi-return data by only considering the last return of each pulse.
Allow export of Lidar point clouds to PLS-CADD format files.
Fixed error when discarding points outside of some range (in standard deviations) from the mean on load.
Fixed error saving workspace with modifications to a Lidar point cloud if all Lidar classifications in the point cloud are turned off on the Lidar Configuration dialog.
Fixed color of Lidar points on map legend to reflect custom Lidar colors from the Lidar Configuration tab.
Analysis Function Changes
Added option to generate contour lines directly from 3D TIN areas. This allows you to exactly maintain breaklines or other 3D features when you have a 3D TIN including those, such as you might save from the gridding process. There is a new Analysis menu command for generating contours from TIN areas.
Added option to 3D Path Profile to display the path from each terrain layer separately. This allows easily comparing the surface of multiple loaded terrain layers along a path. The new option is under the Display Options menu on the Path Profile dialog. You can also right-click on the profile itself when this option is enabled and select a new option to specify what color to use for each terrain layer line.
Added option to get the min/max/avg elevation in a corridor around a defined path for 3D path profile display and line-of-sight analysis. There are new menu commands under the Path Setup menu on the 3D Path Profile dialog for defining an elevation corridor. You can specify the corridor width and specify whether to use the minimum, maximum, or average elevation encountered along lines perpendicular to each sample location.
Added option to save a 3D Path Profile to a DXF file directly from the File menu on the Path Profile dialog.
Updated the Raster Calculator to support calculations from elevation grid layers. You can now apply any custom formula to loaded terrain layers to create a new terrain layer. The layer may actually be a grid of other non-elevation values, like NDVI values, etc., so this opens up an entirely new set of analysis possibilities.
Added built-in Raster Calculator formula for NBR (Normalized Burn Ratio).
Added built-in NDVI shader for displaying calculated NDVI data grid data in a nice manner. If you select a NDVI formula then the display will default to the NDVI shader.
Added new Analysis menu command to ‘Create Layer Statistics Report’. This allows you to analyze loaded vector layers and generate a report of feature counts and attributes. This provides the functionality of the GENERATE_REPORT script command in the user interface. You can also get this by right-clicking on a layer in the Control Center and selecting to display layer statistics.
Added option to the Line of Sight dialog so that you can specify the from or to elevations are relative to a selected layer rather than just ground or sea level. This allows you to specify transmission relative to an actual ground layer while including things like clutter or obstruction layers on top for the line of sight, like perhaps a tower extending above trees that act as obstructions.
Added option when finding ridge lines to only find ridge lines above some minimum elevation.
Added option to Generate Contours dialog to discard any closed contour line segments below some minimum length threshold in meters. This makes it easy to discard any very short little contours that commonly crop up in very detailed data sets, like those derived from Lidar.
Added Resampling method selector on the Generate Contours dialog for selecting which resampling method to use when sampling terrain layers during contour generation.
Fixed problem with the Pile Volume calculations results not being consistent with the results if you add elevations from the terrain to the area vertices then calculate against that.
Fixed problem with high bit-depth images created with the Raster Calculator not displaying properly if the calculated values are larger than 255.
Fixed problem with tiny unconnected line segments sometimes being created as part of contour generation.
Fixed path profile when sampled at a fixed distance interval to not include the non-endpoint vertices that aren’t at an exact distance multiple.
Fixed problem with inconsistent path profile/line-of-sight results depending on your zoom level when creating the path profile.
Fixed crash when doing a path profile where no elevations are available on the path.

Digitizer Tool Changes
Added polygon selection mode in the Digitizer Tool. You can enable this under the Advanced Selection submenu, then you can draw a polygon by left clicking to define a region to select features in.
Added option to create point features at grid line intersections when creating a regular grid of features. This new option on the Create Regular Grid dialog allows you to get a point feature named for the grid cell it anchors created automatically at each grid cell intersection.
Added option to create ellipses with a defined major and minor axis length and rotation with the Create Range Ring option.
Added option to select all point/Lidar features within some distance of selected line features. The option is under the Advanced Selection right-click submenu when you have one or more line features selected.
Added option when applying elevations to selected vector features from loaded terrain layers to add the terrain elevations to any existing elevations (i.e. make the elevations relative) rather than just overwriting any existing elevation values with the terrain elevations.
Added option to copy attributes from point to lines features with the Copy Attributes option in the Digitizer Tool.
Added option when copying attributes between feature types to handle when more than one “from” feature is in or near the “to” feature.
Updated the option to show a path profile for a selected line feature to allow showing the path profile dialog for up to 8 selected lines at once. Each selected line will get its own dialog.
[
GEM Module Only] Added a new checkbox option to the 'Create Flattened Site Pad Plan' dialog to specify that the new flattened terrain should be inside the selected area(s) rather than outside. This means that the new terrain will smoothly transition from the heights at the edge of the area to the terrain surface inside the area.
Updated the regular grid creation so you can now choose to either anchor it to the top-left point like before or specify to fill a box. If you choose to put the grid in a box, you select the box you want and just the number of rows/columns or the cell width/height, then the other value is calculated from the box.
Added option when creating coverage polygons for features (and layers) to control how “smooth” the resulting polygon is relative to the data.
Added options when creating points from area centroids to control whether or not the points are moved inside the areas if the centroid is outside the area (the default) and also whether only a single centroid per group is created if you have grouped areas.
When creating points at line intersections, include the attributes of the intersecting lines as attributes of the new intersection points. The attribute names will be prefixed with LINE1 or LINE2 depending on which line they came from.
When creating points at the centroids of selected area features, make sure the point doesn’t end up inside an island of the area.
When you move a vertex of a 3D line to a location that snaps to a 3D feature, the Z value of the vertex is now updated to the Z value of the snapped location.
Made creating multiple new area features from lines in separate operations default the layer to the last selected layer for the new areas rather than always defaulting back to the User Created Features layer.
Fixed problem with the Z values assigned to area vertices being divided by 100 when you snapped to existing 3D points/vertices.

Scripting Changes
Added support for adding vector features from inside a script by using a new DEFINE_TEXT_FILE command which allows embedded text descriptions of features right in the script and then loading with IMPORT_ASCII.
Added new Favorites toolbar option to ‘Run Last Script from Run Script Command.’ This option will run the last script that you ran via the File->Run Script command.
Added support for generating contours from 3D TIN areas by adding GEN_FROM_TIN_AREAS=YES to the GENERATE_CONTOURS script command.
Added new LOG_MESSAGE command to allow writing any string (including variable values) to the current script log.
Added support for copying attributes from point to line features using the COPY_ATTRS script command.
Added support for controlling the copying of attributes from areas to points when there are multiple areas containing a point with a new MULTI_AREA parameter for COPY_ATTRS.
Added support for controlling the copying of attributes from areas to lines when there are multiple areas containing a line with a new MULTI_AREA parameter for COPY_ATTRS.
Allow overriding the palette interpretation of a layer in the IMPORT or SET_LAYER_OPTIONS script commands by adding a PALETTE_NAME parameter with the filename of a palette file to use.
Added support for wildcard matches in type names in EDIT_VECTOR compare strings rather than requiring an exact match or a match on all types.
Added support for replacing new-line character sequences using the EDIT_VECTOR command. Just use \n in the from or to side of an ATTR_REPLACE_STR parameter.
Added support for cropping layers to a polygon boundary specified in layer pixel coordinates rather than layer native coordinates. Do this by defining the pixel boundary with a DEFINE_SHAPE command and adding CLIP_COLLAR_POLY_PIXEL=YES to the IMPORT command.
Added support for specifying a producer code and security classification for DTED exports using EXPORT_ELEVATION. New DTED_PRODUCER_CODE and DTED_SECURITY_CLASS parameters are now available.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Support using bin-based gridding with GENERATE_ELEV_GRID script command via GRID_ALG and GRID_BIN_SIZE parameters.
Added option to create area skeleton lines using the EDIT_VECTOR command. Add CREATE_SKELETON_LINES=YES to the command to create them.
Updated creation of buffers with the EDIT_VECTOR command to support putting the buffer distance units right in the BUFFER_DIST parameter. Also made units of MILES work, they were treated as meters before.
Updated match on loaded layer filenames and descriptions with wildcards to do a case-insensitive search of loaded layers.
Added support for appending results of EXPORT_METADATA to existing text file by adding APPEND_TO_FILE=YES to the command. You can also add a custom header line with a new HEADER parameter and add an extra blank line with ADD_BLANK_LINE=YES.
Added option to SPLIT_LAYER script command to make the description for the new layers just the attribute value instead of also including the original description. Add LAYER_DESC_ATTR_ONLY=YES to enable this.
Added SCALE_XY_AS_TENTHS and SCALE_Z_AS_TENTHS parameters for the EXPORT_VECTOR command when exporting to SEGP1. They provide the same options that the interface has when exporting SEGP1 files.
Made PRECISION parameter for EXPORT_VECTOR script command also work for SVG exports.
Added support for customizing the color format used for GENERATE_EQUAL_VAL_AREAS command with new ATTR_FORMAT parameter.
Allow specifying colors as raw integers or hex representation like “#RRGGBB”.
Made GEN_TAB_FILE work when exporting to ECW or JPEG2000 files with EXPORT_RASTER command.
Made DEFINE_VAR prompts shown when running a script in batch mode from a command line if no default value is provided or the prompt is for a directory or file.
Fixed save of world file from EXPORT_ELEVATION script command to specify correct spacing and corner.
Made Run Script dialog title bar show the filename of the script that is loaded.
Allow using letters for PRODUCER_CODE for CADRG/CIB exports with EXPORT_RASTER.
Added support for adding USE_CENTER_COORDS for ARCASCIIGRID export with EXPORT_ELEVATION script command.
Added support for importing text files with a per-vertex time column using the IMPORT_ASCII command with a custom COORD_ORDER parameter describing where the time column is located.
Added support for a new PIXEL_SIZE_MAX parameter for EXPORT_RASTER and EXPORT_ELEVATION commands where you can specify the maximum pixel dimensions to use. Either width or height may be shrunk to maintain sample spacing.
Added support for specifying slope values in percent rather than degrees when defining a shader via the DEFINE_SHADER script command. Add SLOPES_PERCENT=YES to command to indicate the slopes are in percent.

Projection/Datum Changes
Made custom datum definitions save into Global Mapper file formats, like .gmw, .gmp, and .gmg. This allows you to load a file or workspace saved with a custom datum on another machine and have that datum automatically added to the new machine.
Made unrecognized ellipsoids in WKT PRJ files automatically be added as a custom ellipsoid.
Added option to set the current view/export projection from a WKT projection string stored in a feature attribute. Now if you have a feature attribute whose value is a projection string (like from a PRJ file), you can right-click on that attribute in the Feature Info dialog and set the current view/export projection based on the attribute value.
Updated Equirectangular projection to match Esri products when using datums based on an ellipsoid. Note this will make any saved Equirectangular data from GM prior to v15.0.4 not match the results of anything after v15.0.4. This is a rarely used projection though.
Improved handling of "Local" projections with rotations to and from WKT PRJ files to match Esri.
Added built-in Naparima 1955 datum.
Added support for additional EPSG codes.
Updated datum shift file for ED50 (Spain/Portugal) to new file from 2009.
Fixed Transverse Mercator transformation with negative northing values and displaying in a projection system with a datum based on a sphere rather than an ellipsoid.

Online Source Changes
Added built-in links to all NASA GIBS (Global Imagery Browse) sources. This includes daily imagery from the AQUA, MODIS, and TERRA satellites among many others. There is an entire NASA GIBS group in the online download dialog that provides quick access to all of the sources.
Added built-in links to Landsat8 downloads from USGS Earth Explorer. The Landsat8 data is not available as a streaming source, so the new source just takes you to the web site.
Added built-in links to online Lidar data from the USGS and other US agencies under new Lidar group in online source dialog. The USGS National Lidar Dataset is linked to via EarthExplorer. The bounds you specify will automatically be sent to the EarthExplorer site for easy download.
Added built-in GlobCover Land Cover ESA 2009 source. This source provides land cover data for the entire world. A built-in roughness tab for calculating roughness grids from the ESA 2009 data is also included.
Added prompt for dimension values for streaming WMTS sources that have customizable variables, like a time/date for NASA GIBS sources so you can pull down imagery from whatever date you need.
Fixed problems with using WMS sources set to not draw with tiles and also using the option to limit the zoom level range they display at. The data was still downloading even at zoom scales it wasn’t requested.
Fixed error using WMS sources with a negative “resx” or “resy” tag value in the layer definition.
Improved status reporting when sources are down so that you can get additional information about what is going on with a data source without having to contact technical support.
Added new 'Export: Online Sources Use Same Scale Logic as Draw' option to Advanced section of General tab of Configuration dialog so that the zoom scale selection logic works the same for online layers when exporting and drawing. If unchecked draws will skew more towards the lower resolution layer (when scale is between 2 zoom scales on the online server) while exports will pick up the more detailed layer sooner. If checked then both exports and draws use the draw behavior.

Format Specific Changes
Added support for Adobe ISO 32000 Geospatial Extensions to PDF and 3D PDF export.
[GEM Module Only] Improved loading of IHS Well (297/298) files so that directional surveys for each well come in as separate lines and you can better visualize the entire well path in the 3D viewer.
Added Attribute Setup tab to Shapefile export to allow customizing exported attribute types and lengths.
You can now load KML files that reference local imagery (<GroundOverlay> tags) and those will load like a map catalog with the bounds of each image shown until you zoom in.
Added support for positioning rotated images from KML files that use the gx:LatLonQuad tag of a <GroundOverlay> to provide the corner coordinates.
Re-enabled support for loading KML files that are marked as UTF-8 but have improperly encoded characters internally.
Added support for loading Parcels from LandXML files.
Further rendering improvements for complex DXF/DWG files, including fixing problems with lines that are too wide and better support for multi-line text.
Made DWG exports of 2D line features create 2D polylines rather than 3D polylines.
Improved quality of CADRG exports when vector data is included in the export.
Updated Geographix CDF import to add attributes for PLSS and Texas Land  Survey System attributes in ‘B’ records.
Updated Geographix CDF export to include PLSS survey information in export ‘B’ records for survey section areas.
When exporting to Platte River .dat files, don’t add .0 to township and range values.
Added additional layer Metadata reporting for ASRP, CADRG, CIB, DTED, and ECRG format data.
Improved display of imagery with 32-bit floating point samples.
Updated BSB export to add dimmed palettes for dusk and night display.
Added option to specify elevation digits of precision and resampling method when exporting to XYZ Grid files.
Added option when exporting vector KML/KMZ files to control whether or not picture points (i.e. points with externally linked images, like a JPEG with an EXIF position) are embedded directly in the KMZ or are just linked to the local file on disk.
Support loading of attribute/value pairs from <description> tags in KML files where an HTML table is used with a single row of attribute names and another row of attribute values.
Fixed load of 3D area features from KML/KMZ files (only a single elevation used before).
Added option to use WKT formatting and includes area and line features when batch converting to CSV format files.
Added display of additional metadata values for NITF format files.
Updated Wasp Map export to include both roughness and elevation for area features with both.
Allow loading NetCDF files directly from .grd.gz files.
Made export of background lines (i.e. thick road backgrounds, striped lines, etc) work to PDF files.
Added option when batch converting from PDF format files to control whether or not PDF layers that are hidden by default are included in the exported results or not.
Added support for loading NetCDF files with 32-bit integer samples for the grid.
Added support for GRIB files from NOAA with Polar Stereographic projections and with longitudes from 0-360.
Fixed inversion of some PDF files positioned with Adobe 32000 position data.
Fixed error loading some S-57/S-63 data sets.
Made the DGN import option to import cells as points work for DGN v7 files. Does not currently work for newer DGN files.
Fixed problem with fixed width area border styles not saving to GMW and GMP files.
Fixed error saving a workspace with modified ASCII text files that contained areas.
Fixed display of 32-bit TIFF grayscale imagery with invalid values of -2147483647.
Remove extra blank line after header lines when exporting to SEGP1 format.
Fixed problem with PRJ file not being found automatically for SHP files on a network drive that has case-sensitive filenames.
Fixed error reading OTF feature template file.
Fixed problem with attributes coming in wrong for text files with WKT coordinates in the first column.

Rendering/Style Changes
Added support for rotated multi-line text.
Added new line styles for double lines with lines on the outside path but not the middle.
Added support for specifying a background color and width for any line style to allow drawing a solid line of any color behind any line style.
Added new line styles for rendering lines based on elevation. This will use the current elevation shader to colorize each line segment based on the average elevation of the segment. This is useful for GPS tracklogs and other 3D lines, like contours. There is also a special GPS menu option to enable this for track lines which is just a shortcut to set the track line style to use elevation shading. You can also render the GPS vessel itself in a color from the current elevation.
Updated Swipe Tool to allow swiping multiple layers rather than just a single one. Useful if you have a group of layers that you want to swipe on and off rather than just a single one.
Made Map Layout text display on top of any fixed screen ‘always on top’ layers, rather than under them. This allows you to easily place labels on top of things like custom logos and legends.
If you edit the style for multiple selected attribute-based styles on a Styles tab of the Options dialog for a vector layer and you change the color, the color will now apply to all selected styles. If you don’t change the color the original color will be kept, allowing you to change the style of multiple values without making them use the same color.
Fixed loading of Surfer ASCII Grid files that use tabs rather than spaces in file header.
Updated the Feature Info Tips display setup under the View menu to allow providing a custom formatting string, similar to how you set up custom label display.
Updated display of nearest feature elevation in status bar to be in current Elevation Display/Export Units rather than always native layer units.
Fixed problem with drag-and-drop not working from Windows Explorer on machines with Windows UAC enabled.
Made metadata display for layers in the Map Catalog Options dialog actually load the layer and show the full metadata rather than just general metadata.
Added * after workspace name in title bar if the workspace has un-saved modifications.
Added new right-click option for layers in the Control Center to control whether or not export is allowed from the layer. This is stored in workspace files as well.
Added new Position Display Format option to show lat/lon values as just plain decimal with no degree symbol or hemisphere indicator. You can select this in the Position Display Format setting on the General tab of the Configuration dialog.
Added optional tracking and reporting of errors encountered and commands and formats used so that we can better concentrate our development efforts on the most commonly used functions and also fix bugs even faster. You can disable tracking under the Help menu. No identifying information or mapping data itself is included with the reporting, only statistics about what is being used and any errors.
Made the statistics displayed when right-clicking on a numeric column in the Search dialog and selecting to display stats show the sum of the values in addition to the other stats.
Updated check-in of borrowed license to automatically check license back out normally from the license server rather than requiring you to re-register against the license server.
Made the ‘borrow until’ date show on the Help->About dialog if using a borrowed license from a network license server.
Improved automatic adding of commonly used commands to the Favorites toolbar to add more commands used in the Digitizer Tool.
Made the ‘Shift Layers’ option in the Control Center remember the last offset units and values.
Fixed problem with custom vector point symbols from DXF files being vertically flipped.
Fixed favorite option to move selected vertices to work if only a single vertex is selected.
Fixed problems with favorite shortcuts using special characters like commas.
Made GPS NMEA data log dialog resizable.
Fixed slowdown replaying a recorded GPS NMEA log in real-time. The display was very unresponsive.
Fixed problem with GPS menu option to keep the vessel on screen being disabled.
Fixed problem with some settings, like custom styles and custom datums, not saving and being available in the next session if some Global Mapper SDK-based applications had been run on the machine, such as SonarWiz.
Fixed PolygonClipper.cpp error when exporting reprojected data with islands where some of the islands of an area cannot be displayed in the export projection.
Fixed crash showing metadata for a layer in a map catalog.

WHAT'S NEW IN Global Mapper v15.0

Significant New Features
Added support for feature extension plugins to Global Mapper.
These allow 3 rd -parties and customers to create add-ins to Global Mapper to extend the functionality through their own toolbars and/or menu items. The feature extensions will have access to all data loaded in the Global Mapper application instance through same API used by the Global Mapper SDK. There is an item under the Help menu for managing the installation and registration of feature extension plugins and add-in modules. There are 2 extensions included with the install, a COAST extension allowing cost-analysis of sea level rise simulations, and a Map Overview extension to allow adding a separate map window allowing easy navigation around the entirety of the loaded data.
Added separately licensed Lidar module with advanced Lidar analysis functionality. See Lidar Changes section below for details. The licensing is handled under a new Help menu option for working with module and feature extension licenses.
Added Raster Calculator under Analysis menu for performing mathematical operations on multi-band imagery to extract different types of information. You can use pre-defined formulas, like NDVI and NDWI, or create your own free-hand formulas using common mathematical operations, like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and powers, as well as simple operators like absolute value, minimum value, and maximum value of 2 values.
Added option to adjust the elevation shader colors based on just the elevations in the current view. There is a new option on the Vertical Options tab of the Configuration dialog to enable this behavior. It allows easily pulling out localized elevation differences when you zoom in to an area with small relief changes relative to the entirety of the loaded data.
Added
support for passing variables on the command line to a script. You can provide the variable after the script (.gms) filename itself on the command line in the form ‘-var_name var_value’. For example, ‘global_mapper.exe “c:\my_path\my_script.gms” –my_var my_var_value’.

New Supported Formats
Added support for importing and exporting 3D PDF files. Underlying data format in PDF 3D Annotations may be U3D or PRC. We do not support the less common PRC format at this time.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for loading E57 Lidar files.
Added support for CMIP5 HDF5 data sets with sea surface temperatures.
Added support for loading text files with the coordinates stored as ECEF (Earth-Centered Earth-Fixed) coordinates. The Coordinate Format drop-down on the ASCII Text Import dialog has an option to specify that the coordinates are ECEF.
Added support for GCP (control-point) files with the pixel coordinates specified as a percentage value rather than an absolute pixel coordinate. So if you have text placement files with just the corner coordinates you can easily add 0% or 100% for the X and Y pixel coordinates of each corner to get a good placement.
Added support for loading ANUGA Rainfall and Greenland Terrain NetCDF format files.

Lidar Changes
Added a new premium Lidar add-on module with advanced Lidar analysis tools. You can activate the Lidar module license under the new Help menu command for managing modules and feature extensions.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added new  binning methods for gridding Lidar point clouds. You can now create a regular grid from the minimum, maximum, or average value in individual “buckets”. This method is extremely fast compared to the normal triangulation-based approach. You can select which method to use on the dialog that appears when importing Lidar data.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for displaying and editing the classification of Lidar points in the path profile tool. You can control the corridor width and select displayed Lidar points in the path and reclassify them or delete them. Any Lidar points that are displayed are also considering for line-of-sight operations.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for applying colors from loaded imagery layers to loaded Lidar point clouds directly in memory. This allows easily creating a fully colorized Lidar data set without having to export to a new LAS/LAZ file first.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for automatically identifying and classifying ground-shot points from unclassified Lidar point clouds.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for drawing points from a point cloud as a ‘height above ground’. This will determine a ground elevation for all locations under the point cloud (using classified ground and water points if available) and then display the height relative to that. The new draw mode is available on the Lidar draw mode drop-downs.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for exporting elevations to LAS/LAZ points from a point cloud as a ‘height above ground’. There is a new checkbox option on the LAS/LAZ export dialog allowing you to specify that the saved Z values should be heights above ground rather than the normal elevation. You can also script export of height above ground by adding SAVE_HEIGHTS_ABOVE_GROUND to the EXPORT_VECTOR command for LAS/LAZ export.
Added new Lidar tab to Configuration dialog for easily filtering Lidar data by classification and return type.
[
LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for saving Lidar statistics from a script. If you add ADD_LIDAR_STATS=YES to an EXPORT_METADATA script command you get all of the information from the Statistics tab of the Metadata dialog dumped to the file.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added Alter Elevation Values tab to Lidar options dialog to allow offset, scale, and  range restriction of Lidar point cloud data. This is the same as the Alter Elevation Values tab available for gridded elevation layers.
Faster drawing of large Lidar point clouds by using multiple cores/processors.
Much faster drawing of reprojected Lidar point clouds when zoomed out so the point cloud takes up only a tiny part of the screen.
Added new option on Lidar Options dialog to control the brightness when coloring by intensity.
Added support for new ASPRS classifications 40-45 from Topo-Bathy Profile for bathymetric points.
Support exporting Lidar point cloud data to DGN and PDF files.
Improved the reported density figure (points per square meter) on the metadata dialog for Lidar point clouds. Now the point cloud is chopped up into a grid and the count of points in each piece of the grid is used to calculate more localized densities, then those are analyzed to get a good representative density that skews towards the denser parts of the cloud. This is especially improved for point clouds with large areas of no data as those no longer bring down the calculated density.
Fixed bug editing Lidar points from some Lidar files, particularly ASCII Text or MrSID Lidar, LAS/LAZ editing was not affected.
Fixed bug that caused RGB colors to not display for point clouds with less than 512 points.
Fixed bug that would cause the scan angle to be reported incorrectly for some points in very rare cases.
Fixed crash loading LAS/LAZ files with an invalid (but non-zero) date in the header.
Fixed bug with elevation values being multiplied by 100 when exporting part of a point cloud to a GMP file with the export elevation units set to Statute.
Fixed bug with the displayed elevation range not updating when changing the elevation units for a loaded Lidar layer.
Analysis Function Changes
Improved path profile/line of sight paths that cross areas of no known elevation so that the path is smoothly interpolated between the surrounding valid elevations rather than showing 0 for invalid locations.
Fixed problem with very large view shed calculations and very small clearance at the view shed center that resulted in a strange pattern of blocked samples in the outer parts of the view shed.
Fixed problems with the creation of polygon coverage for area and line layers that could cause the coverage to cross through some long straight segments.
Allow editing the parameters and recalculating multiple view shed layers at once from the Control Center. Previously you could only edit and recalculate a single view shed layer at a time.
Added display of the total elevation increase and decrease along a path on the 3D path profile details.
Fixed crash in path profile when creating a new point feature along the profile and assigning it to a new layer rather than an existing one.
Added checkbox option to view shed calculation to control whether or not to treat invalid/missing elevations as ocean (height of zero).
Fixed issue in v14.2 with odd island creation in view shed coverage and equal area coverage creation.
Fixed issue in v14.2 with pressing cancel on view shed options dialog causing the Control Center to stop updating properly.
Added option when creating roughness areas from a land cover layer to control whether or not invalid areas are automatically chopped up.
Fixed problem calculating roughness grids from land cover layers that have had color modifications, like translucency, contrast, etc. applied.

Digitizer Tool Changes
Added option to automatically download and/or load files/web links associated with an attribute of selected features. This is a very powerful feature allowing you to easily download files associated with features (like coverage areas) from online server or load from local disk. This option is on the right-click Attribute submenu when one or more features is selected.
Added option to create numbered points along a distance/bearing/COGO line. The points start at a specified number and increase by 1 for each vertex.
Added option to copy attributes from  line features to area features.
Added option to create radial lines at some fixed angle interval when creating a range ring.
Updated option to crop selected areas to a selected line to allow cropping areas to multiple selected lines at once.
When creating new areas or lines by clicking on existing 3D features, only require half of the clicked locations to have valid elevations before creating a new 3D feature. Any vertices with unknown elevations will be filled in from the adjacent elevation values.
Added new option under Crop/Combine/Split submenu to chop up selected area features until they have less than some vertex count.
Add new right-click options under the Vertex menu to move the vertex selection to the next or previous vertex. This is available when a single vertex is selected in a line or area.
Made the measure attributes for areas in a group of areas include a GROUP_AREA attribute that is the combined enclosed area of all areas in the grouping.
Added option when creating buffer areas from 3D areas and lines to add a Z offset to the buffer areas so you can stack them.
Updated option to add coordinate attributes to selected features to also work for line features. The start and end point coordinates will be saved in START_X, START_Y, END_X, and END_Y attributes.
When calculating elevation statistics for selected lines, add a LENGTH_3D attribute for the length of the line along the surface. Also prompt if any 3D lines are encountered to see if the existing per-vertex elevations should be used or if samples along the line path from the terrain should be used.
Added option to customize the drawing style used when creating range rings.
Fixed bug that would cause areas that failed to combine with errors to be marked as deleted rather than  kept unmodified.
Allow reversing the vertices for a single selected area (previously only worked for lines or if multiple areas were selected).
Fixed problem with every 32 nd  vertex not showing vertex editing commands in right-click menu.

Scripting Changes
Added
support for passing variables on the command line to a script. You can provide the variable after the script (.gms) filename itself on the command line in the form ‘-var_name var_value’. For example, ‘global_mapper.exe “c:\my_path\my_script.gms” –my_var my_var_value’.
[LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Added support for saving Lidar statistics from a script. If you add ADD_LIDAR_STATS=YES to an EXPORT_METADATA script command you get all of the information from the Statistics tab of the Metadata dialog dumped to the file.
Added new DEFINE_VAR_TABLE command to allow providing a table of variable values with key names to allow easily creating generic scripts with tables of things like state names and abbreviations associated with a numeric code, etc.
Added support for creating buffers around features using the EDIT_VECTOR command. There are new BUFFER_DIST and other attributes (see the scripting reference for details).
Updated behavior of VAR_LOOP_START so that if you provide an end value less than the start and explicitly provide a positive VAR_STEP, the loop is just skipped rather than the step direction being automatically reversed. This
allows you to use the VAR_LOOP_START as an ‘IF’ statement to conditionally execute a block of commands.
Updated COPY_ATTRS command to allow copying from areas to areas.
Added support for replacing text strings within feature attribute values using the EDIT_VECTOR script command and a new ATTR_REPLACE_STR parameter. This allows you to replace one text string with another in a particular attribute value (or feature label) for all features matching a search query.
Added support for extracting more pieces of the path to the current file inside a DIR_LOOP_START...DIR_LOOP_END. You can now use %PARENT_DIR1% to get the grand-parent folder, %PARENT_DIR2% to get the super-grand-parent, etc.
Added support for including %SPLIT_ATTR% in the EXPORT_VECTOR command when splitting by attribute so that you can use the split attribute value in the export filename path.
Added support for deleting all attributes except a list of allowed attributes with EDIT_VECTOR. You can provide one or more ATTR_TO_KEEP parameters to specify which attribute s to keep.
Added support for specifying the export row and column order for XYZ grids exported with EXPORT_ELEVATION using new EXPORT_ROW_MAJOR, REVERSE_COLS, and REVERSE_ROWS parameters.
Updated cropping to polygons during export to support any special attribute name for POLYGON_CROP_NAME_ATTR and POLYGON_CROP_FOLDER_ATTR. The previous <Area Display Label> and <Area Source Filename> still work but are deprecated in favor of the standard names, like <Feature Name>.
Added support for including a filename  suffix when cropping an export to a list of polygons. Add a POLYGON_CROP_FILENAME_SUFFIX to specify text to include after the attribute value but before the file extension in the output filename.
Added support for controlling whether or not areas with the same filename attribute are combined when doing a POLYGON_CROP_USE_EACH operation. Now POLYGON_CROP_COMBINE_DUPS handles this.
Added ALLOW_COMMA_DECIMAL parameter to EXPORT_VECTOR command for Shapefiles to control whether or not a comma can be treated as a decimal when detecting floating point fields.
Added support for exporting area and line features to CSV files with EXPORT_VECTOR by adding POINTS_ONLY=NO as a parameter.
Support providing a custom  precision and no-data value for Arc ASCII Grid exports with the EXPORT_ELEVATION command using VOID_ELEV and PRECISION parameters.
Made cancelling an individual grid cell export for EXPORT_ELEVATION or EXPORT_VECTOR cancel the entire script immediately list it already does for EXPORT_RASTER.
Added support for supplying the flight date for an exported Lidar LAS/LAZ file with a FLIGHT_DATE parameter for an EXPORT_VECTOR or EXPORT_ELEVATION script command.
Added support for KEEP_ZERO_AT_ZERO parameter for GENERATE_WATERSHED command to allow disabling the option to keep zero (ocean) elevations at 0 height for flow modeling.
Added support for specifying the projection to use for a POLYGON_CROP_FILE using a new POLYGON_CROP_FILE_PROJ parameter.
Added support for marking lines that are a subset of another line as a duplicate when using MARK_DUPLICATES=YES or DELETE_DUPLICATES=YES with the EDIT_VECTOR command. Just add SUBSET_IS_DUP=YES to command.
Improved behavior of FORCE_EXIT command so it doesn’t cause a different exception to be thrown. Now it cleanly exits the application. Also if the application does crash for some other reason 1 should be returned as the return code rather than  0.
Added option to ignore islands/holes in areas when using CONVERT_AREAS_TO_LINES=YES with the EDIT_VECTOR command. Now also add IGNORE_ISLANDS=YES to only create lines from the parent area boundary.
Updated JOIN_TABLE command to accept FILE_DELIM=SPACE or FILE_DELIM=TAB.
Made MIN_ELEV and MAX_ELEV for GENERATE_CONTOURS command be interpreted in the ELEV_UNITS specified rather than always meters.
Projection/Datum Changes
Updated Alberta 10TM projection to have separate “zones” for Resource and Forestry versions of projection.
Added new EPSG codes for Indiana State Plane zones using US Feet (codes 2965 and 2966 replacing deprecated codes 2244 and 2245).
Fixed problem loading Nautical Miles units from WKT PRJ files.
Added better error message when we can’t load a WKT PRJ file due to an unrecognized datum, ellipsoid, or unit string.

Online Source Changes
Included OpenSeaMaps data as a built-in online source. This provides sea-marks (buoys, etc.) as an overlay layer to draw on top of an already loaded layer, like base OpenStreetMaps data or an imagery layer.
Fixed issue with some WMS sources not listing all available projections that are defined in the capabilities document if said document didn’t also list a bounding box for that projection.
Fixed issues with tiled (OSM/TMS/Google Maps) sources with a ? followed by extra parameters in the base URL not saving properly to workspace files.

Format Specific Changes
Updatd DXF/DWG import to set the default view to the extents specified in the file rather than just showing everything. This eliminates the default view of a bunch of extra stuff and not the core data.
Added additional options to DWG/DXF export for choosing what information about a feature to create the layer name from  (i.e. description/type, name, layer name, etc.).
Greatly improved display of text loaded from DWG/DXF files, including getting font names and proper alignment in many cases.
Fixed problems with some extruded features being improperly positioned when reading from DXF/DWG files. This is a very old problem that is finally fixed!
Made 3D Tin Face areas loaded from DXF/DWG files use the brush style for the type from the Area Styles tab of the Configuration dialog rather than always filling the TIN areas.
Dramatically improved the rendering and load of CityGML files.
Improved  handling of non-English text in Shapefiles/DBF. Text will automatically be converted based on the language specified in the DBF file. Support for UTF-8 decoding specified in a .cpg file along with the .shp file is also supported.
Added support for specifying the output format (MG2, MG3, or MG4) and the network cartridge server location
Updated PDF export to have options to control where the header and footer strings are placed relative to the margins. You can now place them in the center or edges of the margins or directly on the map.
Make sticky notes in PDF files import as text point features.
Improved placement of text next to point symbols in exported PDF files.
Updated DGN export to write point features out as 0-dimensional line features rather than create shared cells for each point.
Added options to XYZ Grid export to allow exporting from the bottom-to-top or right-to-left rather than the default order.
Added registry option to specify the precision for XYZ Grid elevation exports. If you add a DWORD key in ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Global Mapper’ with a name of ‘ASCIIGridExportPrecision’ and a value of 0 or higher, that value is how many digits of precision to include after the decimal for the output Z values.
When loading GeoTIFF files with an Esri .aux.xml and the option is selected to prefer world files over built-in coordinate information, use the .aux.xml positioning before all else if the .aux.xml has both a projection and control points.
Updated generic ASCII text import where attributes from coordinate lines are kept and lines are broken based on the change in some field to add the break attribute to the attribute list for the line feature.
Added option to KML/KMZ vector export to control whether or not filled area features with no border are chopped up automatically into smaller pieces to avoid issues displaying them in Google Earth.
Added additional attribute and style decoding from CityGML files.
Updated BSB exports from a single layer with an automatic crop boundary to save that in the exported KAP file’s PLY entries rather than the full export bounds to allow seamless viewing in other applications.
Updated CADRG and CIB exports to wrap the a.toc file in a NITF header to make it readable by more applications.
Fixed errors reading some ASRP data sets with incorrect data in the header file.
Added built-in area fill colors for OSGB VectorMap Local GML files.
Made area groups be supported for import from and export to CSV files with WKT coordinate strings and MULTIPOLYGON objects.
Added option to Shapefile export to allow discarding any attributes for which all values are empty.
Fixed problems reading some Shapefiles over 2GB in size.
Made the RGB color at the cursor location display in the status bar for ECW, JPEG2000, and MrSID image files.
Updated Shapefile export  to replace degree characters with spaces since some versions of Arc can’t handle degree symbols in DBF files.
Added option to Shapefile export to control whether or not ELEVATION attributes are written out for features with a single elevation value.
Added option to Shapefile export to control whether or not a comma can be used for a decimal when detecting the type of fields.
Fixed problem with extra comma  in the Projection Setup field for Ozi .map files written out for some projections (like Transverse Mercator).
Added option to generate PRJ files when exporting to most terrain formats, including Arc ASCII Grid and XYZ Grid.
Allow loading files from .tar.gz archives that are larger than 2GB in size.
Added support for Swedish RIK files with transparency and also made the SWEREF99 projection read correctly from newer RIK files.
Fixed export of ECW file with New York East State Plane zone storing as New Jersey zone (they are identical definitions so the coordinates are the same anyway).
Updated Erdas Imagine IMG files to automatically obey any no-data values specified in the header, both for terrain grid and imagery files.
Fixed handling of attributes with double-quotes from PLS-CADD XYZ files.
Improved support for <ExtendedData> tags with attributes in KML/KMZ files.
Fixed encoding of non-ASCII folder names in KML/KMZ files.
Fixed problem with the latitude of origin not writing out to MapInfo files for Hotine Oblique Mercator-based projections, like Swiss Grid.
Updated GPX import to automatically assign the symbols for waypoints if the <sym> tag matches a point symbol name in Global Mapper. If not the <sym> tag value is saved as an attribute and will be kept on export to a new GPX file.
Fixed export of labels with the background marked as filled rather than transparent to PDF files. Now (if not rotated) the background will be blanked out in the PDF as well.
Added new option on OSM/TMS/Google Maps/Bing Maps export dialog to only export tiles that are fully covered by the export bounds. This advanced option makes it easier to update just part of an earlier large web tile export.
Automatically decode datums from GeogCitationKey in GeoTIFF files if provided there but not in datum code.
Fixed error loading some HTF format files.
Fixed bug in export of area Shapefiles that could cause some islands/holes to turn into parents in the exported file.
Fixed problems with some area features not loading from DGN files if they are incorrectly marked as ‘holes’.
Fixed errors loading some workspace files over 2GB in size.
Fixed export to 3D vector files pulling elevations from Erdas IMG files with overviews or online layers to pull from an appropriate layer automatically (most detailed for IMG files) rather than pulling from current drawn layer.
Renamed ‘Gridding’ tab to ‘Tiling’ to make the intent clearer, especially when used in conjunction with other operations that refer to ‘grids’.
When cropping loaded layers to multiple selected area files, allow using just the most overlapped area from the selected areas to crop rather than all. When cropping a map catalog to multiple areas this is automatically done for each map in the catalog individually. This allows easily cropping to a custom grid of coverages all at once.
When placing your mouse near 3D features, the elevation of the feature (or closest location on 3D areas/lines) will be displayed on the status bar after the feature description.
Added new ‘Show All’ button to Search dialog allowing you to easily reset the search back to all searchable features.
Updated search on attributes != (not equal) to a text value to include results that don’t include the attribute at all.
Added option to display slope percent grades on the Elevation Legend if using a slope shader. Enable this by right-clicking on the elevation legend if a slope-based shader is active and checking the option to display slopes as percent grade.
Added option when creating custom elevation shaders to repeat the colors for anything outside the specified range rather than clamping them.
Updated Style tabs of Options dialog for vector layers to allow manually entering an attribute name to base the styles on rather than  selecting from a list. This allows selecting an attribute style for map catalogs where the attribute list isn’t known up front.
Add display of the coordinates of each vertex in the current view/export projection on the Feature Vertices dialog for area/line features if the feature is reprojected.
Made Control Center position and size be remembered in workspace (.gmw) files. If you have the Control Center displayed when you save a workspace, the next time you load that workspace the Control Center will automatically be displayed at the location it was when you initially saved the workspace.
Updated the Feature Info dialog to show the combined area of all grouped areas next to the group area count.
Added a new menu command on the Options->Rectification Method submenu on the rectification dialog to control whether or not an explicitly selected method of Polynomial will switch to a 2nd-degree polynomial at 6 points or not.
Added option in 3D view to control the step size used by the water up/down toolbar buttons.
Updated the Full View (Home) button to ignore any hidden layers when zooming to the full view.
Added support for customizing the 3D view rotation angle based on pressing the ‘4’ or ‘6’ key. If you add a string value ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GlobalMapper\3D_KeyRotateAngle’ with the number of degrees to rotate with each key press that will be used rather than the default.
Allowed zooming to 1:1 resolution for multiple selected layers from the right-click menu on the Control Center. Previously it only worked if a single raster or elevation layer was selected.
Fixed multi-band export fill value for no-data values. Should be 0 or the gray value of the background color, but was set to last valid encountered value in v14.2
Added display of current loaded and selected  layer count on the title bar of the Control Center.
Updated option to create polygonal coverages for selected layers from the Control Center to work for map catalog layers as well. Rather than just creating bounding box areas for each map in the catalog it will now load and create coverage polygons for each map.
Play a sound when lengthy operations (i.e. 5 minutes or longer) complete. This provides a way to notice a long operation  is done without switching back to the program.
Fixed bug with extra period being inserted in some filenames on export when you don’t explicitly enter the extension to use.
Added support for connecting to GPS devices at 300, 1200, and 2400 baud.
Smoothed out some sharp edges in vector data when transforming with a coordinate transformation file with more than 4 control points.
Fixed batch conversions to multi-band imagery formats when the ‘Use Other Source Files as Filler’ option is checked.
Added support for new text alignments that align text with the baseline of text rather than the middle of text. This is not automatically used when loading DXF/DWG files that specify that alignment.
Fixed problems with creation of coverage areas for some data sets.
