        • [LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Fixed issue with extraction of separate roof pieces from classified Lidar point clouds. It would not work if the point cloud used linear units other than meters. [Item #16380]
      • 3D Viewer Changes
        • Support 3D Models as Custom Symbols for Point Types. The Configure Point Styles dialog allows the user to add 3D models to be used for rendering point features in the 3D viewer. Models can be attached to point styles or to individual features. Models can be sized automatically or by attribute. [Item #14378]
        • Behavior of 3D Viewer Zoom and Arrow toolbar button change. The Zoom In and Zoom Out toolbar buttons in the 3D Viewer move behave the same as the mouse scrollwheel. The Left, Right, Up, and Down toolbar buttons now behave the same as their respective arrow keys on the keyboard. They no longer cause redraws in the 2D view, nor do they affect the bounds of the 3D view scene. [Item# 15805]
        • Allow cancelling a draw of 3D Lidar that is taking a while by pressing the Escape key, an arrow key, or clicking with the mouse. [Item #15811]

        • Added ability to save fly-through frames as a series of BMP, JPG, or PNG files. [Item #15970]
        • Fixed issue where fly-through would not maintain height above terrain surface between key frames. Regenerate path data using “Relative” altitude mode to enable. [Item #15253]
        • Fixed issue where fly-through view would not be correct if path layer is not in global projection. [Item #16125]
        • Fixed issue where toolbar buttons would not show correct option enabled state when clicked during fly-through. [Item #16371]
        • Support 3D Models as Custom Symbols for Point Types. The Configure Point Styles dialog allows the user to add 3D models to be used for rendering point features in the 3D viewer. Models can be attached to point styles or to individual features. Models can be sized automatically or by attribute. [Item #14378]
        • Speed up performance of texture-based point symbols in the 3D viewer. For point features that use a standard bitmap-based rendering in the 2D viewer, panning and zooming is greatly enhanced in the 3D viewer. In general, texture handling for point symbols and meshes has been improved in the 3D viewer, and some standard symbols (e.g. the dot symbols) are now implemented using a non-texture based approach. [Item #16312][Item #14896]
      • Path Profile/Line of Sight Function Changes
        • [LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Allow undeleting deleted Lidar points on the Lidar path profile. If deleted features are displayed and some deleted Lidar points are selected, the user will be prompted whether to undelete the deleted points or to delete the selected normal points. [Item #16018]
        • Fixed display of path profile for a multi-point line when changing the sampling to only show the heights at vertices/endpoints. [Item #15817]
        • Save N/A in saved CSV when no surface elevations are present rather than -999999.0 meters (or feet version). [Item #15846]
        • [LIDAR MODULE ONLY] Fixed issue with deleted Lidar points still being used for selection on the Lidar path profile when deleted features aren’t being displayed. [Item #16018]
      • Analysis Function Changes
        • When creating/modifying attributes via formula, either in the Attribute Calculation Setup dialog or by script, the formula is now persisted, along with the associated attribute, into the layer(s) being modified. The Attribute Calculation Setup dialog can now reference and display the previous formula for the new attribute, if one exists, so that a user can have an idea of what changes a previous formula made to an attribute. [Item #15322]
        • The Attribute Calculator and Raster Formula Calculator have new Excel-like AND() and OR() logical functions, which function similarly to equivalent infix operations. That is, the formula “AND( A, B, C )” is equivalent to the formula “A AND B AND C”; likewise for the new OR() function. [Item #15322]
        • Updated Watershed analysis tracing flow to or from selected area, line, or point features to include a TRACE_FLOW_DIR attribute in each generated area with the traced flow with a value of ‘FLOW_FROM’ or ‘FLOW_TO’ to indicate what direction the flow in the area is indicating. This can be useful for modifying styling based on the type of flow watershed. [Item #16289]
      • Digitizer Tool Changes
        • Added a new right-click option on the Feature Vertex dialog so you can easily duplicate vertices for an area feature. This allows you to use the “Pen Up” draw mode option to turn off the drawing of some segments of the area border. [Item #15997]
        • When creating a regular grid of features with the cell count or size calculated from a rectangle, make the rectangle bounds option of all loaded data actually use all loaded data and not the screen bounds. [Item #16108]

        • When playing back a video associated with a line feature, left clicking on the line while the Digitizer Tool is active and in the default select mode will move the video to the associated time in the video. [Item #16443]
      • Scripting Changes
        • Support writing any script messages to the command prompt when running a script on the command line. Add LOG_TO_COMMAND_PROMPT=YES to the GLOBAL_MAPPER_SCRIPT command at the start of the script to enable this. [Item #16023]
        • Support using parts of the filename for each grid cell in the parameters for an EXPORT command that grids the operation in to multiple pieces. You can use one of %TILE_DIR%, %TILE_FNAME_W_DIR%, %TILE_FNAME%, and %TILE_FNAME_WO_EXT% in the parameter list for the gridded command to have the corresponding part of the grid cell filename replaced in the parameter value. [Item #16247]
        • Support sending LOG_MESSAGE text to a different file than default script messages by using SET_LOG_FILE with a USER_FILENAME parameter specifying the file to send explicit LOG_MESSAGE text to. [Item #15940]
        • Fixed issue with LOG_MESSAGE command adding extra blank line. [Item #16259]
        • Updated LOG_MESSAGE command to support adding your own line breaks with \n and tabs with \t. [Item #16259]
        • Added SNAP_BOUNDS_TO_SPACING and SNAP_BOUNDS_TO_MULTIPLE parameters for EXPORT script commands to allow snapping the operation bounds either to the nearest sample spacing (for raster/elevation operations) as well as to the nearest multiple of a provided number. If SNAP_BOUNDS_TO_SPACING is not provided, the snapping for spacing will obey the option to snap export bounds to the nearest sample spacing bounds found in the Advanced section of the General tab of the Configuration dialog and set-able using the SET_OPT command with MISC_OPT=EXPORT_BOUNDS_SNAP_SPACING. [Item #16228]
        • Added pre-defined variables for using the script folder (%SCRIPT_FOLDER%) and Global Mapper version (%GM_MAJOR_VER%, %GM_FULL_VER_W_DATE%, %GM_FULL_VER_NO_DATE%) in a script. [Item #16285]
        • Added Global Mapper version (GM_VERSION) and saved time (TIMESTAMP) to the GLOBAL_MAPPER_SCRIPT command at the start of a saved workspace. [Item #15864]
        • Removed requirement that a VERSION parameter be included with the GLOBAL_MAPPER_SCRIPT command at the start of a script. If the parameter is there, it must have a value of 1.00. [Item #15864]
        • Allow providing number of sample points for CREATE_POINTS_ALONG_FEATURES, RESAMPLE_FEATURES, and CREATE_PERP_LINES_ALONG_FEATURES options for EDIT_VECTOR script command. Use a negative number for those values to specify a sample count rather than sample distance in meters.[Item #16059]
        • Allow selecting a file that doesn’t exist yet (i.e. filename to save) with the DEFINE_VAR script command with PROMPT=FILE. Just add FILE_MUST_EXIST=NO to the command to allow entering any filename. [item #15875]
        • Added support for specifying the attribute to use for the layer name in DWG/DXF exports using the LAYER_NAME parameter for the EXPORT_VECTOR script command. [Item #15935]

        • Added support for disabling automatic simplification of custom crop polygon for raster layers by adding CLIP_COLLAR_POLY_SIMPLIFY=NO to IMPORT command. [Item #15932]
        • Updated EXPORT_WEB format to use a default MAX_ZOOM_LEVEL value appropriate for the loaded data if none provided. Also automatically make the specified FILENAME have a full path if just a filename is provided. [Item #16069]
        • Suppress unneeded message when exiting Global Mapper after running script from command line. [Item #15873]
        • Allow variable replacement for lines in a DEFINE_PROJ section. [Item #16001]
        • Added support for extruding the edges of the generated mesh when exporting elevation data to STL format when using the EXPORT_ELEVATION command. Just add EXTRUDE_EDGES=YES to the command to enable extrusions, and optionally, add, for example, BASE_ELEVATION=50 to extrude to an elevation of 50 (the default is 0). When extrusion is enabled, any grid rectangle that has a corner that's invalid (i.e., is not present in the gridded data) or below the base elevation setting is excluded from the export. These options are also supported in the UI when exporting elevation data to STL. [Item #15914]
        • Added scripting control for exporting 3D models in “Z-up” and “Y-up” orientations. When using the EXPORT_ELEVATION command to export elevation data to STL format, which exports to Y-up orientation by default, add Z_UP=YES to export to Z-up orientation instead. Conversely, when using the EXPORT-VECTOR command to export vector features to 3D model formats like OBJ, STL, DAE, etc. (but not SketchUp), add Y_UP=YES to the command to cause it to export to Y-up orientation instead. In addition, you can add NO_PROMPTING=YES to the EXPORT_VECTOR command to prevent the 3D export options dialog from popping up during your script. [Item #16045]
        • Made EXPORT_ELEVATION and EXPORT_RASTER script commands obey the option to snap export bounds to the nearest sample spacing bounds. [Item #16228]

        • Added built-in Australia Geoscience Water online sources (see Country Data->Australia). [Item #15868]
        • Added option to control the detail setting for streaming online sources. The Detail slider on the download online source dialog and the Options dialog for an online source (as well as the DETAIL_MULT parameter in a script) allows you to control what zoom level is pulled from the online source relative to the calculated display/export resolution. [Item #16048]
        • Make it easier to add ESRI RESTful services. The item to use was renamed from ‘Google Maps Tiles’ to ‘ESRI RESTful/Google Maps Tiles’ to make it more obvious. In addition, common URL mistakes are automatically detected, including missing slashes at the end or incorrect tile sizes. The server will be checked to see which of several options creates a working source rather than depending on the user to get everything correct to start with. [Item #15838]
        • Added built-in Korean VWorld DEM streaming terrain source with high resolution terrain for part of the world. This source requires an API key from the data provider. You can script these sources with the IMPORT_OSM_TILE command and SOURCE_TYPE=”VWORLD_DEM” provided. [Item #16103]
        • Fixed issue with newly added sources not showing up in the source list the next time you run Global Mapper due to an incorrect <MaxVersion> value being saved for the source in the user_online_sources.xml file. [Item #15836]
        • Fixed issue load data from some WFS sources (like FEMA Hazards) that expect the lat/lon bounding box in a different order than the standards would require. [Item #16004]
        • Fixed issue with default bounds for some WMS sources not being cropped to the max lat/lon bounds specified for the source. [Item #16184]
        • Fixed issue with custom TMS online sources with a custom tile URL not using the correct row numbering. [Item #16227]
      • Projection/Datum Changes
        • Improved projection names stored in PRJ files and GeoTIFF headers (PCSCitation and GTCitation). Now if you load a WKT PRJ file, the projection name will be remembered and used for export. If no name is known on export, a web service is queried to try and determine the projection name. A good default is used for common projections. There is also a new epsg_codes.txt file in the user settings folder that allows overriding EPSG code definitions and adding ‘name=’ parameters to the end to specify the friendly PROJCS name. [Item #13814]
        • Improved EPSG code support. Now unknown codes will pull from the epsg.io web site. [Item #16104]
        • Improved assignment of datums from WKT PRJ files when a TOWGS84 transformation is defined. If multiple datums match the name specified, the datum transformation closest to the specified TOWGS84 is used. [Item #16104]
        • Added Nova Scotia zones 4 and 5 to the MTM Eastern Canada projection. [Item #15844]
        • Improved accuracy of Minnesota County projection conversions. [Item #15819]

        • [16.2.4] Improved name stored in WKT PRJ files for MGA projections. Previously the PROJCS name was stored as UTM as UTM and MGA are the same. [Item #16019]
        • Added Minnesota County zone ‘St. Louis TM’ for the new St. Louis County Transverse Mercator Coordinate System 96’ that provides a single projection for all of St. Louis County. A new datum and ellipsoid for St. Louis county was also added. [Item #15951]
        • Updated Hotine Oblique Mercator B projection to save name in WKT PRJ files as ‘Hotine_Oblique_Mercator_Azimuth_Center’ rather than just ‘Hotine_Oblique_Mercator’ which is also written out for the Hotine Oblique Mercator Azimuth Natural Origin projection. [Item #15888]
        • Made Hotine Oblique Mercator Two Point Natural Origin projections load from WKT PRJ files. [Item #16203]
        • Fixed initialization of lat/lon crop boundary on Cropping tab of Options dialog and actual crop to lat/lon bounds for UPS North/South and other projections that are highly non-orthogonal to the lat/lon grid. [Item #16017]
      • Format Specific Changes
        • Automatically load grid files with no extension in the same folder as a recognized .hdr file as grid files. [Item #15990]

        • Added support for exporting GeoTIFF elevation grids with 32-bit integer samples and additional linear unit options (i.e. centimeter and millimeters). Those additional elevation units are also recognized when loading in GeoTIFF elevation grid files. [Item# 16263]
        • Updated SOSI import to automatically assign the proper character set for displaying the text from the file. [Item #15832]
        • Updated SOSI export to properly convert text to the character set being exported. In addition, more character sets are supported, including Nordic (ISO-8859-10). The best character set for the data being exported will be chosen automatically. [Item #15832]
        • Add progress reporting to SOSI export, including ability to cancel. [Item #15832]
        • Allow selecting land cover palettes (NLCD, GlobCover, CORINE) when exporting to palette-based raster formats, like GeoTIFF, PNG, etc. [Item #15859]
        • Fixed import of 3D Face entities from DXF and DWG files. Previously you would get both the 3D area and the duplicate border lines. Now you just correctly get the 3D TIN areas. [Item #15810]

        • Added ‘Originator Name’ field to the CADRG/CIB export dialog. If a value is provided, it is stored in the NITF header for the exported frame files. If no value is provided the Producer Name will be used (as before). You can also provider this via the AUTHOR parameter for the EXPORT_RASTER script command. [Item #16088]
        • Fixed error exporting CADRG/CIB with space at beginning or end of the Frame File Folder Name. [Item #15799]
        • Fixed issue in v16.2.0 loading Carlson Binary Grid Files. [Item #14882]
        • Added ability to import 3D models with left-handed orientation to Global Mapper’s right-handed orientation. This is now a choice on the new 3D import dialog that consolidates other options that were handled separately previously. [Item #15813]
        • Fixed error loading text file with single unknown non-coordinate attribute. [Item #15861]

        • Fixed export of elevation legend to PDF files when also coloring elevation based on what elevations are in the current bounds. [Item #16128]
        • [16.2.5] Fixed issue with metadata for layers in a map catalog just flashing for a second and going away if that layer wasn’t already displayed. [Item #16124]
        • Improved performance of OTF feature load. [Item #16140]
        • Made OTF import as map catalog optional to permit splitting of features into separate layers. [Item #16153]
        • Fixed issue where GeoCalc transform information was not saved for all layers in a workspace, requiring user to pick transforms again when loaded. [Item #14051]
        • Updated DXF and DWG export when exporting feature labels as attributes to place the attribute at the appropriate Z (elevation) rather than at 0.0. [Item #16161]
        • Fixed display of Tobin BAS files with border segments turned off. [Item #16168]
        • Fixed case where incorrect bounds were being stored in MBTiles metadata. [Item #16207]

        • Added support for tracking GPS devices using Glonass (Russian) or Baidu (Chinese) NMEA sentences. [Item #15984]
        • Added new GPS toolbar buttons to control whether or not the main display centers on the GPS vessel location and automatically rotates to keep the GPS heading towards the top of the display. [Item #16043]
        • Allow update of GPS location on display up to 10 times per second (vs. about 3 before). In addition, new GPS locations are drawn more immediately after they are received in most cases. This helps with high frequency GPS devices traveling at high speed, such as in an aircraft. [Item #15937]
      • Rendering/Style Changes
        • Made vertical lines and lines that are a single pixel at a zoom level draw as a single pixel on the screen rather than not drawing at all. [Item #16229]
        • Updated Feature Info Tool when selecting a sample/pixel from a loaded raster/elevation layer to display the full bounds of the sample when zoomed in and to also draw the circle at the center of the cell and not the clicked location. [Item #16426]
        • When not displaying all labels regardless of overlap and drawing each vector layer (and labels) separately based on the Vector Display Order During Draw setting, don’t draw labels further down in the layer list that would overlap an already drawn label. [Item #15913]
        • Allow symbol scale factor to work when applied to a custom shape symbol that is defined with a default size and color. [Item #16115]
        • Fixed issue with fixed screen position layers (including scale bar, legend, etc.) briefly jumping around when playing back video linked to a line feature. [Item #15897]
        • Fixed issue with partially see-through raster layers not updating automatically when the display of a terrain layer underneath changes. [Item #15792]
        • Fixed issue with display of text in a code page (language) other than the current system language on the map legend. This also allows UTF-8 encoded text to display on the map legend. [Item #15905]
        • Fixed a problem where dragging a rotated map using the middle mouse button didn’t re-center correctly [Item #15974]
      • Updated display of coordinates on the status bar. UTM projections now include the zone number. If there is a terrain value available and the Z units are not the same as the XY units, the XY and Z units will be display separately to avoid confusion. [Item #15853]
        • Added ‘LOAD TIME’ to metadata for all layers showing how long it took to load the layer. [Item #15928]
          • Fixed loading of layers with a faked position to use arc seconds rather than arc degrees for the ground units so the data doesn’t cover a huge part of the earth or become invalid. [Item #16069]
            • Automatically use the Helmert transformation for layer rectification when provided just 2 control points that result in the X and Y pixels being significantly different in size and/or inverted when a simple Linear transformation is used. [Item #16035]
              • Made changing of user settings file path on Help->About dialog copy over all files from the old settings path. Previously some settings, like the user online sources, were not being copied when changing to a new settings path. In addition you are now prompted to delete all files that were successfully moved over so you don’t end up with the old copy sticking around. [Item #15934]
                • Made resampling method box on many dialogs (watershed, water rise, raster/terrain export, etc.) reset X and Y sample spacing to defaults when changing from a box resampler to a normal one if the user hasn't changed the spacing manually. [Item #15972]
                  • Fixed issue with attributes containing ‘ELE’ somewhere in the string being treated as elevation attributes when no other obvious elevation choices can be found. For example, a file with a ‘PipeLength’ attribute was treating that attribute as elevation automatically. [Item #15840]
                    • Fixed rare crash doing multi-threaded operations that also does reprojection, like roughness grid area finding, equal-area creation from rasters. [Item #15815]
                      • Fixed issue with file associations not being correctly set on install for Global Mapper formats (.gmg, .gmp, etc.). [Item #14513]
                        • Fixed issue with yellow border around exported image formats when drawing a box to specify the export bounds and including map layout elements (scale, legend, etc.). [Item #16204]
