Global Mapper is a poweful GIS software. I have been using Global Mapper since version 14. Now, I have Global Mapper 18.0 and its getting better. Well, today I am going to show you how to export raster on Global Mapper 18.0. We can easily export Global Mapper map to georeferenced raster/image.
On this example, I am going to export an online topography imagery to Tiff (GeoTiff) format. First, I assume you load or open your map to Global Mapper. See the following tutorial to get started:
Here is my current Global Mapper window
You can open any data you may have. It doesn’t have to be online imagery as mine above. Next, go to File | Export | Export Raster / Image Format. The new window will open up. Select the image format you want. In this example, I choose JPG.
Click OK to confirm the selection. Now we need to specify some export settings. On the General tab, you can specify the output image quality. Also, if you want to open the exported image on other GIS Software such as Mapinfo or ArcGIS, you may need to enable the following options:
- World file (.jgw)
- ESRI .aux xml projection file
- TAB Mapinfo file
Now, lets specify the export bound. Click Export bound tab and you should see some options here. You can export all loaded data, all data visibel on screen, draw box and some other options.
Click OK when done. Next, you will need to specify the file location to save the exported image.
Done. The export process should begin. It depends on how big area you are exported. It can take hours if you try to export big data or area.
