Written by: Haley Brown, Technical Content Writer


The latest release of GeoCalc Online ensures the most accurate, reliable, and proven geodetic conversions and calculations found in our desktop software are available to users, anywhere, at any time, from our cloud hosted libraries over the web. This blog highlights the top features of the software’s latest improvements:  

1. Point-to-Point Calculator Improvements

This update makes it easier to sort and choose the appropriate transformation by displaying the accuracy of each conversion in the transformation picker.

Coordinate systems and transformations also now have a direct link to their information page in the GeoCalc Online Geodetic Registry. In the picker, any object now has a direct button to view information on that specific definition. This functionality quickly finds documentation on the desired definition.Transformation Picker

2. Improvements to Mobile User Interface

The Point-to-Point Calculator has been made more mobile-friendly for ease of use on the go. After selecting an operation on the calculator, the page now reorders automatically based on the selection instead of having to scroll through the page.
