Connect Global Mapper™ with the Summit Evolution™ Photogrammetric Workstation
The new DAT/EM Capture™ for Global Mapper connects Global Mapper from Blue Marble Geographics with any edition of DAT/EM’s famous Summit Evolution stereoplotter. It enables Summit Evolution to be a 3D digitizing device for Global Mapper and allows Global Mapper projects to utilize the tools of Summit Evolution. DAT/EM Capture is the interface to collect vector information directly into Global Mapper from stereo images. Capture works in the background to send 3D (x, y, z) ground coordinates to Global Mapper. Simultaneously, 2D or 3D features from Global Mapper are rendered back in true relative 3D position in the stereo display using DAT/EM SuperImposition for immediate feedback and feature verification.
