Blue Marble Geographics announces the release of the GeoCalc 6.7 software development kit (SDK). This release features enhanced speed and memory handling, making the GeoCalc SDK even more powerful for coordinate transformation. Blue Marble's geospatial data manipulation, visualization and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organizations.
GeoCalc is the leading coordinate transformation "engine" for converting data from one coordinate system to another and performing advanced geodetic calculations including HTDP time dependent shifts. Blue Marble’s flagship developer toolkit is an object-oriented class library that can be incorporated into applications written for multiple development platforms. GeoCalc can provide GPS, surveying, engineering or mapping programs fast and accurate coordinate conversion capabilities. GeoCalc is found in the Geographic Calculator and many commercial GIS and survey applications. The release of GeoCalc 6.7 features speed and memory enhancements for performing coordinate transformations as well as added support for the NGS-VDatum system allowing for tidal vertical references along the US coast. The release also includes new support for Vertical Datum references EGM 2008, Geoid 2012a and Finnish 2000/N60 height models.
