I am having a problem when I am opening Global Mapper workspace that I had already created and saved it. Evey time I try to open it an error appear and nothing opens on the screen. Is there a way to open this .gmw file.

  • Did you mean to put arcgis and arcmap tags on this? It sounds like only GlobalMapper is involved.

Perhaps the source data files have been moved. Open the .gmw file in a text editor and check the path of the map file located within it by searching for IMPORT FILENAME= If you still can't figure it out, contact Blue Marble's excellent support.
