Gardiner, Maine – D Blue Marble Geographics announces the release of the Geographic Calculator 7.2 via the Blue Marble Desktop 1.1, the all-in-one geospatial data management platform for Blue Marble’s popular data transformation tools.  This release features two major functionality enhancements available with the purchase of a Geographic Calculator 7.2 license: multi-vector file translation and ESRI Spatial Database support.  Whether you are working with coordinate, vector, or raster data the Blue Marble Desktop allows you to address your data conversion challenges in the same application interface. Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software companies, universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, government and military organizations.

With the release of Calculator 7.2, Blue Marble has rolled up the entire functionality of the Geographic Translator into the Geographic Calculator’s map file conversion tab.  Now with the purchase of a Geographic Calculator license Blue Marble customers can translate between over twenty various vector, CAD, and ASCII formats.  Support for new vector formats include: KML, GML (simple features), DXF, DWG, DGN, DLG, E00, GEN, SDTS, S-57, TIGER Line (legacy format), and much more. Geographic Calculator also features a major upgrade to the ESRI Extension tool.  Users can now work with the Calculator ESRI Extension in the Arc Tool Box or ArcMap.  The new Arc Tool Box features read and write support for ESRI Personal and Arc SDE Databases.

The Blue Marble Desktop 1.1 also features a new Geodetic Datasource View tool to streamline administrative set up of the datasource, dramatically simpler filtering of the datasource view, new viewer tools for changing the appearance of vector files in the display, and the ability to import custom datum transformation parameters from ESRI GTF files.  Additionally, Desktop 1.1 is now compatible with EPSG database 6.18.

“The Geographic Calculator now handles a variety of file format translations with the world’s most flexible and powerful coordinate system tools,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham.  “With the support for ESRI spatial databases through the Calculator and the raster capabilities of the Transformer, the Blue Marble Desktop is a “must have” for any GIS professional.”
