Blue Marble Geographics is pleased to announce that the Global Mapper Software Development Kit (SDK) has been expanded to provide data processing capabilities in the cloud. Using Amazon Web Services (AWS), developers can utilize Global Mapper’s scripting language to provide a range of online data access, creation, editing, conversion, and distribution services for clients and customers by accessing an AWS hosted version of the SDK. The introduction of the cloud-based SDK functionality streamlines workflows by eliminating the need to transfer large volumes of data to and from a local computer - developers can now efficiently access and process data. Making use of AWS, all of the data management and manipulation procedures can now be performed on cloud servers using Global Mapper scripts. Global Mapper is an affordable and easy-to-use GIS application capable of displaying, converting, and analysing virtually any type of geospatial data.
