Geographic Calculator 6.0 Anniversary Edition Now Available 08.26.2003

Blue Marble Geographics announces the release of a new version of the world’s most recognized coordinate conversion software, the Geographic Calculator. 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.

"This release allows us to add the features and functions that will keep the Calculator the best of its kind on the market today," said Blue Marble Geographics Director of Business Development Patrick Cunningham. "As our customers know, we have taken their suggestions and feedback and done our best to implement them in 6.0."

The Geographic Calculator is the defacto standard for coordinate conversion software in today’s GIS industry. This new version introduces new support for custom local coordinate systems using a polynomial Best-Fit method that links a local system to a geodetic coordinate system. Accuracy can be checked by using the new Display Registration Errors dialog, displayed via an SVG error graph viewer. A convenient new view window dialog for vector file display has also been added. Vertical datum transformations can now be calculated using the GEOID99 model, and support for the Australian Height Datum has been added using the AusGEOID98. Other important updates include enhanced copy and paste functionality for Point Database conversions, support for the Michigan Georef Coordinate System, EckertIV and EckertVI world projections, batch processing for Map File conversions and the generation of a .prj file in the Map File Conversion tab with any Shapefile output.

Blue Marble is also pleased to commemorate 10 years of success with this release by christening this the Geographic Calculator 6.0 Anniversary Edition and introducing a new XP look and feel.
