Along with the support for seven types of spatial databases and the ability to consume WFS (Web Feature Services) and WMTS (Web Map Tile Services) Global Energy Mapper can both publish and consume massive amounts of data. Delivering a tool with a total file format support of around 200 formats, at a starting price of less than four hundred US dollars makes it a truly complementary utility for any GIS toolbox.
