Download Online Maps using Didger's New Embedded WMS Browser!
Create stunning base maps for your projects by downloading image layers from hundreds of free online web mappers servers (WMS) through Didger's new, embedded WMS browser. Didger now allows you to connect to online data sources, pick the layers of interest you want to download, and then seamlessly matches the map's current projection and coordinate system and ingrates the images into your projects.
Didger's new embedded WMS browser is quickly locating and downloading a high resolution image layer to use as a base map.
Export Your Projects to KML and KMZ Format to Publish Your Digitized Data on Google Earth!
Use Didger's extensive set of editing and drawing tools to digitize your data and create new base maps in Didger. Export your maps to KML and KMZ file formats to enable stunning displays of your projects on Google Earth. KML and KMZ files are extremely small in file size so they can be easily exchanged between users. The only application your recipient needs to have installed is Google Earth; which makes a great free viewer for your digitized Didger data.
Digitize your data in any projection and export to KML or KMZ format; Didger will transform your data to match Google Earth's
projection on-the-fly so your digitized data overlay Google Earth in the precise location.

Uses for Didger
Start processing your data quickly and accurately with Didger. Some applications for Didger include:
The process of creating new digital information often starts with a paper map, graph or log, or a digital image such as an aerial photo, satellite imagery or scanned paper map. Didger provides an easy and complete solution to digitize vector data from your source documents and files by using a powerful set of manual and automatic tools.
Didger 5 is tremendously flexible. Didger supports over 90 import file formats and exports in over 45 file formats to make sure you can import and export your data in the formats you need. Create large overlays easily by importing several vector, data, or image files into one project. The files will align according to their coordinate systems.
Working with Images
Images are powerful visualization tools, whether they are aerial photographs, scanned geologic maps, or company logos. Didger makes working with images simple and uncomplicated.
Easy Image Georeferencing
Didger's fast and easy georeferencing process makes it possible to rapidly convert un-referenced images and scanned paper documents to real world coordinate systems (e.g., UTM, State Plane, Latitude/Longitude) for use in Didger or other GIS programs.
Vector Based Maps & Data Files
With Didger you can import a variety of vector based maps and data files in many formats. Create large coverages easily by importing several vector or data files into one project. The files will align according to their coordinate systems.
Projections, Datums, Coordinates
Didger makes it easy to assign or change the projection and/or datum of your data, vector, or image files from one coordinate system to another. For example, in a few simple steps you can convert latitude/longitude data to State Plane data, State Plane data to UTM data, or convert your data from NAD27 to NAD83.
Now it is easy to see your maps the way you want them! Automatically digitize contour or other 3D data in Didger and send them directly into Surfer with a click of a button to change contour properties, overlay with 3D terrain surfaces, DEM files, or other 3D imagery.
Advanced Editing Features
Didger is packed full of advanced editing features designed to make your job faster and easier.
Supported File Formats
Many sophisticated import and export filters come with Didger, simplifying the transfer of your data and images to and from your other applications.
