Blue Marble Geographics announced that a new version of Geographic Transformer is now available.
The addition of read/write support for JPEG 2000 and ECW allows Geographic Transformer to 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.
