Blue Marble to Showcase Global Mapper’s UAV Data Processing Capabilities at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2016

Hallowell, Maine – April 19, 2016 – Blue Marble Geographics is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at the upcoming Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) XPONENTIAL 2016 conference and trade show in New Orleans, LA. This annual event brings together industry leaders and professionals in the fields of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and robotics for three days of educational sessions, technical presentations, panel discussions, and vendor exhibits. Over recent years, Global Mapper has emerged as a mainstay in the mission planning and data management processes for many UAV companies and XPONENTIAL 2016 provides an excellent opportunity for Blue Marble to introduce and demonstrate some of the latest innovations in the software.

Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation, visualization, and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, energy, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government agencies and academic institutions.

XPONENTIAL 2016 convenes the largest global community of commercial and defense leaders in intelligent robotics, drones and unmanned systems. The event is expected to host over eight thousand professionals from industries such as agriculture, construction, energy, utility, academia as well as every branch of the military. Attendees and exhibitors converge under one roof to shape the future of intelligent robotics, drones, and unmanned systems. Blue Marble will be showcasing Global Mapper’s UAV capabilities at booth 1067 in the exhibit hall.

Global Mapper is the GIS software of choice for hundreds of UAV data collection companies throughout the world. Capable of displaying, converting, and analyzing virtually any type of geospatial data, this remarkable application’s format support is unequaled among comparable GIS applications allowing it to be uniquely interoperable across multiple platforms. Any remotely collected data can be quickly processed, analyzed, and delivered in virtually any format. The innovative 3D display tools in Global Mapper enable users to create HD fly-through videos derived from UAV flight path data, and the software includes an embedded UAV Video Playback tool. When it comes to LiDAR or point cloud processing, the Global Mapper LiDAR Module’s capabilities are second to none. From automatic ground classification, to feature detection, to automatic and custom vector extraction, no other software offers so much functionality at such an affordable price.

"Our attendance at the 2015 AVUSI Unmanned Systems Conference was a truly rewarding experience." stated Cunningham, Blue Marble President. "Not only did we hear from dozens of companies who have built their data processing businesses using Global Mapper technology but we were able to bring back ideas to our product managers that helped us steer the continued development of Global Mapper. We are excited to be sharing some of these developments at XPONENTIAL 2016."
