CIB, JPEG2000, GIF, NOS/GEO, Garmin PCX5, GPX (GPS eXchange Format),
OziExplorer WPT/PLT, ASTER DEM, ASTER L1B imagery, Zmap Plus Grids, etc.
Provides direct access to the complete TerraServer satellite imagery and topographic map archive for the entire US for free within the application!
Supports true 3D viewing of loaded elevation data including draping of any loaded imagery and vector data over the 3D surface.
Crop, reproject, and merge any combination of raster data and elevation data, including DRGs. You can also crop data to an area feature.
You can digitize new vector (area, line, and point) features by drawing
them with the mouse. You can also edit existing vector features. Newly
created and editing features can be saved to any of the supported
GPS SUPPORT! You can track a compatible GPS device
connected to your computer's serial port in real-time over any loaded
data. In addition, you can mark waypoints at the current GPS location
and record a tracklog of where your GPS device has been while
connected, all seamless with your loaded map data!
EXPORT SUPPORT! You can export both vector, raster,
and elevation data to a variety of formats (see below). You can merge
any combination of data sets, regardless of source scale, type, and
projection. See below for a list of supported export types.

You can graphically rectify (georeference) any JPG, TIFF, or PNG image
and save the results to a new fully georeferenced image. Vector data
can also have a rectification process applied to it after loading to
allow morphing vector data to fit other data sets.
CONTOUR GENERATION! You can create contours for any
combination of elevation data. You can also specify the contour
interval to use. The generated contour data can then be exported to any
of the supported vector export formats (see previous item for a list).
Automatic triangulation and gridding of 3D point data sets,
such as ASCII XYZ files. This allows you to convert a set of elevation
samples into a fully gridded data set, which can then be used for
contour generation, line of sight analysis, and view shed analysis,
among other things. The data can also be exported to any of the
supported elevation grid formats, such as USGS DEM.
Advanced screen capture. You can capture the contents of
the screen to a BMP, JPG, PNG, or (Geo)TIFF file of user-specified
Batch conversion of almost any input data data files to any compatible export type.
Auto-clip collar for DRG's.
You can now have the collar of USGS DRG files automatically clipped
off. This allows you to seamlessly view a collection of adjacent DRG
Supports opening SDTS DLG, SDTS DEM, and most other file
types directly from .tar.gz and .zip archives. This saves the major
headache of decompressing each SDTS transfer into a separate directory.
Comprehensive view shed analysis using loaded elevation grid data from a user-specified location, transmitter height, and radius.
3D Path Profiling and Line of Sight (LOS) capabilities, including receiver/transmitter heights, minimum clearance, and earth curvature options.
Advanced measurement capabilities, including multi-segment path lengths and headings and enclosed area.
Support the latest DEM and SDTS DEM formats, including decimeter DEMs.
opening DLG-O and DEM files directly from gzipped archives. This means
that you can save space and hassle by not having to decompress the data
after you download it.
Slide over text. When you move your cursor around the
screen you'll get a description of the nearest feature automatically
displayed in the status bar.
Supports keyboard navigation. You can pan about with the arrow keys and zoom in/out with the page up/page down keys.
