4DMapper Incorporates Global Mapper SDK Enabling Cloud Based Geospatial Analytics Print E-mail
Written by Blue Marble Geographics   
Monday, 23 October 2017

Hallowell, Maine – October 23, 2017 - Blue Marble Geographics (bluemarblegeo.com) is pleased to announce that 4DMapper (4dmapper.com ), a geospatial technology company based in Australia, has chosen the Global Mapper Software Development Kit (SDK) as the engine behind its online data analytics services. The company's innovative cloud-based approach to geospatial data creation and distribution reduces the need for their customers to maintain high-end processing hardware and software and it simplifies and streamlines access to the processed data. By making use of a collection of Global Mapper's powerful 3D data manipulation tools, 4DMapper users can quickly and easily convert a point cloud into contours, generate an elevation grid, and much more.

For over two decades, Blue Marble's affordable, user-friendly GIS software has been meeting the needs of hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers throughout the world. Users come from all industries including software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government departments and academic institutions.
 
Global Mapper is an affordable and easy-to-use Windows-based GIS application capable of displaying, converting, and analyzing virtually any type of geospatial data. Recent development work has focused on the visualization, manipulation, and analysis of 3D data, especially LiDAR and other point cloud formats. The Global Mapper SDK provides software developers, such as 4DMapper, with a toolkit for efficiently accessing much of this functionality from within a custom-built application.
 
Built around an intuitive, user-friendly interface, the 4DMapper enterprise geospatial data management platform leverages the cloud computing capability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver fast and efficient results that are comparable to the desktop version of Global Mapper. Software developers from 4DMapper working with their counterparts at Blue Marble, have developed a prototype service of the Global Mapper SDK on AWS to provide a set of utilities for on-demand geospatial data creation and management.
 
Among the tools available to 4DMapper customers are LiDAR ground point identification and reclassification; DEM creation from a point cloud; custom contour generation; and delineation of ridgelines. Each of these workflows involves the uploading of the relevant source data and results in the creation of a derivative file that can be quickly and easily shared with a customer or client on a web browser.
 
"We are delighted that 4DMapper has selected the Global Mapper SDK for their AWS data services," stated Patrick Cunningham, Blue Marble President. "Their innovative cloud application represents a perfect example of how Global Mapper technology can be easily integrated into a third party application in the cloud. We are looking forward to seeing what other customers can do with the technology."
 
Rob Klau, CEO of 4DMapper added, "The Global Mapper integration is an important step on the path to growing the 4DMapper geospatial ecosystem which we continue to expand, providing more value and utility for our enterprise and professional users."
 
Both 4DMapper and Blue Marble will be exhibiting at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas from October 24-26. Stop by booth 103 to see 4DMapper in action and booth 211 to learn more about Global Mapper.
