Download Global Mapper 18.1 Released with Improved 3D Viewing
Blue Marble Geographics has announced the release of Global Mapper version 18.1. This upgrade to the version 18 release includes many functional enhancements through many areas of the software and it introduces an array of new tools, upgrades to existing components, support for several new formats and online data sources and performance improvements to increase efficiency and productivity.
Global Mapper 18.1 offers numerous enhancements that are a proof of the ever-increasing importance of 3D data. Global Mapper’s 3D view, which introduced the ability to display an “infinite view” of all loaded 3D data in version 18, now offers the option to pause the 3D rendering when interacting with the 2D map. This streamlines workflow and significantly improves memory usage by eliminating the need to continually refresh the display.
The rendering speed for 3D raster layers as well as 3D models has also been considerably improved. When creating a 3D fly-through visualization or recording, the flight parameters now include bank angle, to more realistically simulate a pilot’s eye view, and variable velocity, allowing the flight speed to be adjusted between segments.
