Blue Marble says this upgrade is in response to the suggestions and needs of its developer community.

Blue Marble Geographics announced a maintenance update to their GeoObjects software development kit. Blue Marble has been writing GIS software tools and solutions for over 10 years. Their technology is embedded in hundreds of GIS applications currently used by military, oil exploration, civil engineering, surveying, technology and corporate GIS systems.

"With this upgrade we are responding to the suggestions and needs of our developer community by implementing important new features and upgrades," said Blue Marble Geographics Director of Business Development Patrick Cunningham. "Individuals and organizations can now fully evaluate the new trial version for an unlimited time prior to purchase. Our development tool products allow users to leverage our expertise and experience as they develop GIS and mapping solutions - rather than spending time and money reinventing the wheel."

GeoObjects is a high-performance, 32-bit COM control for spatial data access, display, and analysis. The design of the control allows a developer to quickly create high-end GIS applications on any Windows platform. Its ability to display and interact with most industry standard vector and raster file formats makes GeoObjects a must have for any serious GIS developer. GeoObjects is also the core engine behind Blue Marble Geographics' Internet mapping service BeyondGeo.

The new maintenance update (GeoObjects Version 3.1) comes with enhanced support for ECW, BSB, CADRG, and BIL file formats. Previous support for custom labels, Excel worksheets, feature display and querying have also been upgraded. Users may now add a vector reference grid to any GeoObjects layer. Unlike prior versions, the map control now supports existing coordinate systems from .MAP and .PRJ files. This update is complete with new VB and DELPHI sample development code.

This new maintenance update is free to subscribers of the GeoObjects Annual Support and Update subscription program. If you are not enrolled in this service, please contact Blue Marble Geographics for details. If you have a valid Annual Support and Update subscription program, please contact us to receive your installation passcode.
