Global Mapper Empty Global Mapper

G'day all, I have noticed there has been no talk about global mapper on here, not sure why.

Do we know what it is?? I have been using the trial version and what an awesome program, with the paid version there is no end to the information that can be punched into it from government websites etc to then have a map before us with reefs etc. etc.

This program is expensive, but I have found this website http://www.earthscienceagency.com/gis/globalmapper/
and licenses are cheaper by the dozen so to speak as you will see.
I am willing to pay for the intitial payment and depending on how many are interested as to how many licenses are purchased (19 licenses for $269) as to how cheap it will get for all of us.

Have a look and see what you think, I will be buying this for myself but thought for that deal why not make a few of us happy. Let me know your thoughts on this please

Cheers

Are you using the "standard trial version" or the "64 bit trial version" and do you know if there is any difference between the 2

Hi Goldstalker

Yes, I am interrested. Currently looking at the Mapinfo program but it is far to expensive. I do not have the final quote but it is more than $2000. Question
This is a bargain!!!! Put my name on the list please!
Will sent you my details via PM.

Best

d'gold, I'm fairly sure it is just the standard trial version and not sure of any differences.

Kudu, I will save your pm you sent and will be in touch.

Just having a look around their site and noticed (19 licenses for $269) as you mention, this is for each one that makes a total $5,111.00 USD plus shipping etc.

Its only $289.00 for a single one, I don't think its worth trying to save $20 on each one for the logistical nightmare it will be trying to get all the money together.

GoldstalkerGPX,Davsgold,Kudu

Mapinfo,ArcGis/Desktop,GlobalMapper are all good programs as with many others that are out there and many free ones aswell,but some will find it very hard to get the head around using it and if you think you spend alot of time on your PC wait to you start trying to use one of these programs.

It's always easyer to have someone to show you ( DavsGold Wink )

Just look at the cost of buying these programs and yet Ozi-Explorer will handle all that A prospector needs and at only $130 with free upgrades as they are done.

Yes thats for sure, and now that you showed me some of that stuff Oziexplorer will do I have been very happy just to use it in conjunction with Google Earth and Tengraph for WA stuff.

Ozie is a bargin at $130 bucks.

I use V13 64 bit version but that is my job as GeoSpatial data manager for defence ! I do use it on the side to build my own goldfields maps and find it to be very flexable. You can import a heap of different formats and build some amazing maps with it.

Oziexplorer will handle any image you can throw at it and calibrate but you can not build maps up with it. EG. Overlay shape files on a topo raster map. Globalmapper will allow you to do this easily. It will allow easy creation of KML overlays for Google Earth as well.

The KML/KMZ maps produced can be used in custom maps on the newer Garmin GPS this is a BIG plus.
