Global Mapper User's Manual

Download Offline Copy

If you would like to have access to the Global Mapper manual while working offline, click here to download the manual web pages to your local hard drive. To use the manual offline, unzip the downloaded file, then double-click on the Help_Main.html file from Windows Explorer to start using the manual. If you would like context-sensitive help from Global Mapper to use the help files that you have downloaded rather than the online user's manual, create a Help subdirectory under the directory in which you installed Global Mapper (by default this will be C:\Program Files\GlobalMapper8) and unzip the contents of the zip file to that directory.
