GMMS 3.3 Features

With GMMS 3.3 you can:

  • Use all the power of ArcView 9.3 (for Windows Vista and XP).
  • Start from over 180 GMI-produced maps and modify them to suit your specific needs.
  • Build your own maps from over 60 layers of provided geographic information.
  • Change colors, fill patterns, line weights, symbols, etc. as you prefer; and vary point symbols, fill patterns, etc. as a function of your data.
  • Pan and zoom maps to any part of the earth, change map projections, add multiple map views to a page, add titles, text notations, and legends.
  • Add your own geographic and statistical data: geographic and statistical data provided can be edited if needed, or you can import additional data from local sources, or you can digitize geographic data and enter statistical data directly in the mapping system.
  • Include charts, images, and other graphics on your maps; and include images (such as topography, aerial photography, or satellite images) as layers in your maps; global shaded relief (shadows of hills) and colored elevation (green valleys, white mountaintops, etc) are included.
  • Automatically generate and place text labels to avoid overlaps.
  • Make layers partially transparent, allowing display, for example, of both a statistically-generated theme (such as Bible translation status of language groups) and landform information (such as shaded relief) on the same map.
  • Import a wide range of geographic data formats including free data from ESRIís resource center.
  • Work with optional ArcGIS Extensions to perform advanced spatial analysis, statistical analysis, 3D analysis, and map publishing. Export maps to ten different file types including PDF with advanced features.
  • Use the Mapping wizard to automate map creation.

GMMS geographical data sets provide recently-updated, detailed digital mapping of the world's political and physical geography, health and development data, statistical data, as well as locations of the world's 7000+ languages (from SIL's 15th edition Ethnologue).

Also included are leading international church and mission databases, including the 2001 version of Operation World (by Patrick Johnstone and Jason Mandryk), People Group Mapping Project (Joshua Project and and many others. You can easily add your own databases into the GMMS.
