The Geographic Transformer allows users to easily establish an "image-to-world" relationship between image and map coordinates and reproject an image into a georeferenced image map. The Transformer is perfect for handling a variety of image data sources including scanned paper maps, aerial photos, and satellite imagery and is used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts of all skill levels at universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, and military organizations.

This extension allows MapInfo Professional users the reliability, accuracy and power of the Transformer’s geo-referencing and reprojection capabilities right inside their MapInfo workspace, making image manipulation quick and convenient. The Transformer’s advanced reprojection capabilities optimize MapInfo’s existing image referencing functionality and allow for extremely accurate results. This process is essential for working with raster data where accuracy is critical. Projects focused on asset tracking and management, 911 or homeland security, military and government, retail market analysis and risk management all benefit from advanced accuracy. "We are very excited about this release,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. "The Transformer is a great fit for MapInfo Professional, and Blue Marble is pleased to offer a special extension to all MapInfo users.”
