This release offers many new and improved features and functions including a significant improvement in the ability to process and visualize massive amounts of LiDAR point cloud data, jumping from supporting files that contain tens of millions of points to those that contain hundreds of millions.

Global Mapper SDK 14.1 includes new calls for accessing and modifying LiDAR point features within a layer, improved spatial database connectivity, support for CADRG/CIB datasets, a runscript function for running Global Mapper scripts, and newly enhanced watershed functionality that supports generating ridge lines.
