Geographic Calculator 2014
The Geographic Calculator is THE Global Coordinate Transformation tool for any coordinate or geomatic challenge. A powerful windows solution with particular strength in survey, seismic and energy exploration, it is available in 32 or 64 bit versions. This highly accurate transformation software includes tools such as Canadian DLS (Dominion Land Survey) Land Grid tools, Seismic Survey Conversion tools, Area of Use tools for guiding users, and much more. The Geographic Calculator supports a wide range of file formats with support from the largest geodetic parameter database available anywhere. When transformations have to be correct, consistent and certifiable, GIS professionals around the world choose the Geographic Calculator.
Since 1993, The Geographic Calculator has been the coordinate conversion tool of choice for GIS and Survey professionals around the world. The Calculator quickly grew in popularity over that first decade and has maintained its reputation as the best coordinate conversion solution on the market. The Calculator has come a long way since then with many developments along the way. In 2004, the underlying GeoCalc library was re-written and in 2007 a new version of the Calculator was released as the Blue Marble Desktop.
The Blue Marble Desktop is now the Geographic Calculator. With the release of version 2013 the Geographic Calculator incorporated all of the functionality of the desktop including the Geographic Transformer, Translator and Spatial Connect products. There is also no more versioning, it's released annually with service pack updates between releases.
Today the tool provides a single platform for highly accurate coordinate transformation of virtually any type of geospatial data and includes features such as:
- Support for Windows 8.1 machines and improved installation process
- XML based coordinate object library
- Project Manager for data processing, jobs, and workflow management
- Administrative Tools to customize the datasource and restrict editing access
- Unmatched Geoid or Vertical Datum support, including VDatum support
- Powerful Survey Seismic format support
- Raster Geo-referencing, Mosaicking, Reprojecting, and Vector File Translation Tools
- The ability to customize and send your all or part of your GeoCalc datasource to Global Mapper
- Esri Extension and powerful CAD support
This all-in-one interface enables users to complete a number of geodetic and geospatial transformation functions on various types of data in the same interface. The enterprise collaboration tools such as workspaces and network folders enable consistency for highly accurate data translation across your organization.
