Geographic Calculator

"The most impressive thing about Blue Marble Geographics is the ability to transform data using HTDP (Horizontal Time Dependent Positioning), a great feature since Merrick works with datum's that have different epoch dates."

Ed Adams
Senior Geodesist
Merrick & Co.


Geographic Calculator

"I've been looking for this app for years. It's very polished, very easy to use, and very reliable. The Geographic Calculator paid for itself the first day on the job! "

T. Maultsby & P. Eick
Conoco, Inc.


Geographic Calculator

"Indispensable. When I'm converting large files from NAD 27 to NAD 83 there's no other program I'd rather have on my side. It should be in every GIS/GPS professional's toolbox!"
