What do you like best?
Fantastically easy to use - it simply does the job at a very reasonable price.
Very easy to import almost all types of geospatial data formats and elevation daa.
Very quick to render images and models. Able to create "fly throughs" for presentations, videos, etc.
Conversion of file types and changing of projections is as easy as it could be. Only a limited amount of knowledge about geospatial data and projections is required.
A very reasonable price for a licence ($500 I believe).

Recommendations to others considering the product
Even though the likes of Arc and MapInfo are able to utilise each other's file formats, Global Mapper enables one to use either, whilst similtaneously rendering a .dtm, and also predicting pathways for flowing water.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Different companies, clients and software use a vast array of different file formats. Global Mapper enables quick and reliable conversion between these.
