Version 5.0 improves on the batch transformation capabilities of 4.6, automating steps in the process for a true batch transformation.

Blue Marble Geographics of Gardiner, Maine (, announced that a new version of Geographic Transformer is now available. The Geographic Transformer 5.0 is a major version upgrade that adds the features necessary to be one of the most recognized image reprojection software products in today's GIS industry. Blue Marble has been writing GIS software tools and solutions for more than 10 years, releasing the first version of Geographic Transformer in 1996. Since then the Geographic Transformer has been adopted by many companies worldwide as the standard for image reprojection. "We have worked with our customers to gather their feedback and insight for the upgrades in this release," said Blue Marble Geographics Director of Business Development Patrick Cunningham. "With the addition of read/write support for JPEG 2000 and ECW we can now read all large file formats."

Version 5.0 also improves on the batch transformation capabilities of 4.6, automating steps in the process for a true batch transformation. This allows users to load an entire directory for direct reprojection to a common output coordinate system. Geographic Transformer 5.0 also now gives the user the ability to choose between bilinear and cubic convolution resampling methods in addition to the nearest neighbor method used in previous versions. New image file format support includes First Generation JPG2000 read/write support, ECW read/write support, as well as enhanced (internally georeferenced) MrSID display. Other important updates include improved image navigation, separate image file viewers, with click and drag transformation extents, and a complete redesign of the user interface embraces the latest Windows XP look and feel.
