Global Mapper Training

Working with Global Mapper

Duration : 40 hours

This course teaches you how to use Global Mapper for various GIS and Survey tasks. This includes importing online data and save it to use as offline, geo-rectification of raster images, digitization, visualization of 3D data, simulates water flood levels on terrain, draw sectional views, export data to various formats and many more.
