Import a georeferenced bitmap into a vector project, and overlay it with vector and data files, or tile it with other georeferenced bitmaps! Use your GPS directly with Didger 3! Enable the GPS to plot data directly on a map in Didger or save the GPS data to a text file. View the GPS settings in the GPS Commander dialog box. Warp or rectify a bitmap in a raster project! Calibrate the image in a raster project, then use the Warp Image command to rectify the image to match the calibration points. Make the locations of your maps easy to determine by adding a graticule or grid to your vector project. The map below shows North America in the Mercator projection. Increase the organizational potential for creating and maintaining different layers with the enhanced Layer Manager. The Layer Manager is ‘always on’ to make accessing the layers simple Display all the coordinates of a selected object in a raster project in the Coordinate Manager. If you are in a vector project, you can also edit the coordinates within the Coordinate Manager. Bitmap clipping greatly enhances the ease-of-use when working with bitmaps. Two new bitmap clipping options are introduced in Didger 3. When two or more of these bitmaps are imported into a vector project, it may be undesirable to see this information. Simply select the bitmap and clip the map collar. You can also define any polygon on a bitmap and then use that polygon to clip the bitmap. This is helpful in showing specific areas of interest and reducing the file size of the Didger project. Didger 3 has added some new import/export formats to the already extensive selection of import/export formats available: Excel Spreadsheet (*.xls), Microsoft SYLK (*.slk), Lotus 1-2-3 and Symphony (*.w??), Atlas Boundary (*.bna), and Golden Software Blanking (*.bln) ‘I do aerial photography and I am enthralled by the warping/rectification abilities of Didger. That is a very useful tool that I will make good use of. To me, that alone is worth the price of the package.’ ‘The Coordinate Manager will be extremely useful for correcting tablet-based features for which real world coordinates are actually known. I will use it often!! ‘ ‘I really like the ability to convert the projection or a raster project and the ability to choose a UTM datum when projecting a file.’ ‘I will definitely use the Graticule and Grid feature. I usually use State Plane coordinates and this allows me to identify the 10,000 ft grid lines I normally use.’ ‘Didger has to be one of the most user-friendly programs I’ve ever dealt with. It’s ease of use for digitizing over ArcView or AutoCAD is phenomenal!’ Source.
