Hallowell, Maine – February 8, 2013 - Blue Marble Geographics (www.bluemarblegeo.com) will be exhibiting at the upcoming International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) from February 11-13 in Denver, CO. Blue Marble will showcase new and improved LiDAR features and functions including a significant improvement in the ability to load and classify massive amounts of LiDAR point cloud data, jumping from tens of millions of points to hundreds of millions of points.

Global Mapper 14.1 provides a dramatic increase in LiDAR processing and display speed and the ability to view and process point files in the hundreds of millions range. This is beneficial for previewing the data before creating a gridded surface model and includes several options for filtering data during import and rendering point clouds to reflect return type or intensity. Improved metadata access provides a detailed statistical breakdown of the point cloud and customizable point size improves on-screen display. Global Mapper Package (.GMP) files are now able to store LiDAR point clouds in a special compressed format, much smaller than uncompressed LAS data and on par with the best compression available today. This allows LiDAR data to be archived efficiently or shared with other Global Mapper users.


“ILMF is the perfect venue to showcase this release,” remarks Adam Hill, Senior Sales Manager. “The latest enhancements that have been introduced into Global Mapper v14.1 significantly enhance loading speed, and the processing and exporting of massive LiDAR point clouds. Global Mapper v14.1 also contains new LiDAR classification options which allow users to ensure point classification accuracy when visualizing LiDAR data, something I’m sure this year’s ILMF attendees will definitely appreciate.”

Version 14.1 also introduces a host of new functionality to the digitizer tool including a new option to create a coverage area (concave hull) for loaded or selected point features, a tool for creating a line “skeleton” from area features, and many additional enhancements and improvements. Also included in this release, is a new water level analysis function for better flood plain modeling and a tool for creating Voronoi/Thiessen polygons for the spatial analysis of loaded point features. Global Mapper 14.1 includes support for many new file formats such as GeoMedia MDB, DWG 2013, MapBox, MBTiles, and RMaps SQlite files for use on Android mobile devices. There is also a new OTF reader available for an additional license.
