Blue Marble - LiDAR Module for Global Mapper v20

Blue Marble - LiDAR Module for Global Mapper v20


The LiDAR Module (Light detection and ranging) is an optional enhancement to the Blue Marble Global Mapper software that provides numerous advanced LiDAR processing tools, including automatic point cloud classification, feature extraction, cross-sectional viewing and editing, dramatically faster surface generation, and much more. At a fraction of the cost of comparable applications, it is a must-have for anyone using or managing LiDAR data. See more in this brochure (PDF file).

Additional functionality offered in the LiDAR Module includes:

  • A convenient LiDAR Toolbar for easy access to key editing and analysis functions
  • Multiple gridding options for faster DSM or DTM generation
  • Access to point cloud files containing a billion points or more
  • Automatic point classification tools that automatically distinguish building, ground, and vegetation points in unclassified layers
  • Feature extraction functionality to automatically create 3D building footprints and trees
  • Cross-sectional rendering using Global Mapper's Path Profile tool for viewing and editing the point cloud in a vertical perspective
  • Advanced filtering options to efficiently remove erroneous or unneeded points
  • LiDAR scripting commands for streamlining workflow
  • Point colorization from underlying imagery offering photo-realistic point cloud rendering in Global Mapper's 3D Viewer
  • Support for reporting LiDAR statistics
  • Support for importing and exporting most common LiDAR formats

New in LiDAR Module v20

  • New tool for creating a 3D model surface from selected LiDAR points
  • Support for spatially thinning Lidar point clouds
  • New tool for gridding LiDAR Data by Classification
  • New option to create higher quality orthoimage during the Pixels to Points process by creating the image from the 3D mesh rather than the point cloud
  • New option to extract buildings from LiDAR as 3D models rather than 3D vector areas
