Blue Marble Geographics' Geographic Transformer Used in Extensive French Survey 02.25.2002

February 25, 2002
The FPGS geo-referenced their entire image dataset using the transformer.

Blue Marble Geographic's Geographic Transformer was used to georeference and tile the entire digital image dataset of the French Public Geological Survey. The project was conducted for the Bureau of Geography and Mining Research by IMAGIS Mediterranean of Nimes, France.

Approximately 1100 images were georeferenced to Lambert Conformal Conic II and a local French Lambert Zone, then mosaiced into over 5000 tiles.

Since this project has been completed, nearly 60 GB of data has been made available to licensed users of the organization.

The Geographic Transformer is a complete solution for establishing an "image-to-world" relationship between image and map coordinates. It allows for quick and easy geo-reference, re-project and mosaic image files. The Geographic Transformer is compatible with most common GIS software applications including ArcView, ArcInfo, Microstation, MapInfo, AutoCAD and others while supporting a wide range of standard image formats.
