Moving a Layer Based on the Distance and Angle or coordinates in Global Mapper

Often I receive spatial data from clients in the local projection system. While the field data collected with reference utm projection system. To ease the process of spatial data, spatial data from the client must be in slide or be moved to sisem utm projection. Global Mapper provides an easy way to move spatial data (which was added as a layer) based on coordinates or based on distance and angle.

You can remove almost all types of spatial data formats into a new geographic location in Global Mapper, both raster and vector. You can move the satellite imagery, DEM data, shapefile, DWG, DXF, etc. using the same tool, and the process is relatively faster for large files.

Here are the stages to move the layer based on the distance and angle in Global Mapper. Note, you certainly should have a reference distance and angle of displacement or displacement coordinates this purpose.

Add spatial data into Global Mapper as a layer.>
Open the Overlay Control Center from the Tools menu -> Control Center, or press Alt + C.

Select the layer that will be on the move, right click select "Shift Selected Layer (s) a Fixed Distance".

Displacement settings window appears, specify the displacement unit, eg meters. Here you have two options to move spatial data, based on coordinates or based on distance and angle. Displacement determined from the centroid coordinate data to the resultant value or the value of the distance and angle of the destination location.

Click OK to get results. Save the layer transfer results into new files with different names.
