viewer, or the viewer currently has no projection defined, then this option will not be available.
Click the Reset to Last Import Bounds button to retrieve the most recently defined bounding box in
the unit of the current global projection. If there is no data loaded into the viewer, or the viewer
currently has no projection defined, then this option will not be available.
Projections and Datums
The Global Mapper display space adopts the coordinate system of the first table opened (assuming that there
is currently no data loaded.) Subsequent data sets will be transformed to the coordinate system of the first data
set loaded or the display projection subsequently selected from the configuration dialog.
Exporting Data to a Spatial Database
In order to export data to a spatial database, you need to specify the location of the spatial database and one or
more table names in which the data will be stored. When writing to an Esri file geodatabase or personal
geodatabase, you can create a new database file before writing the tables. If you are exporting data to any of
the enterprise database types, you can only create tables in an existing database.
To export data to a spatial database, you start by choosing one of the following export options from the
Export Elevation Spatial Database...
Export Raster Spatial Database...
Export Vector Spatial Database...
When the Select Export Format Dialog is displayed, there will be three choices:
Esri File Geodatabase Table
Esri Personal Geodatabase Table
Spatialite DB Table
Spatial Database Table
Choose the option indicating your desired spatial database type, and press OK to continue.
If you choose Spatial Database from the list, Global Mapper will display the Open Spatial Database Dialog.
Select the database connection that you want to use, and click OK to continue by specifying Spatial Database
If you choose Spatialite DB Table, Esri File Geodatabase Table or Esri Personal Geodatabase Table, Global
Mapper will display the Select Esri Geodatabase Dialog. The following sections describe that dialog and the
required steps to export a table.
Selecting a Spatialite database, Esri File Geodatabase, or Personal Geodatabase for Export
Use the Select Database Dialog to choose a Spatialite database, Esri file geodatabase or personal geodatabase
where you want your exported data to be stored. You can also create a new database, if necessary.
