Blue Marble Applied Geodesy Training at ESRI PUG in Houston, TX: Space Still Available

Gardiner, Maine — February 15, 2008 – Blue Marble Geographics (www.bluemarblegeo.com) announces that space is nearly sold out for the upcoming Applied Geodesy Training class, which will be held in Houston, TX on Wednesday, February 27, 2008. This session focuses on the popular Blue Marble software application Geographic Calculator 7.0, and seats are filling fast. The daylong course offers in-depth training on applied geodesy using this powerful data conversion application. The session will conveniently take place in conjunction with the 2008 ESRI PUG Conference.

The Geographic Calculator course features education on the fundamentals of geodesy and mapping, which is useful for the novice, and as a refresher for the expert geodesist. In fact, many people attend these courses for the geodesy training alone. Here is a chance to not only educate oneself on the science of geodesy, but also learn how to really leverage the power of Blue Marble software. If you have difficulty understanding the difference between a projection and a datum, then this is the course for you. If you manage GIS users and are responsible for the accuracy and reliability of your data and the expertise of your staff, then this is a great course for your entire department. You do not have to be a user of the Calculator to benefit from this course.

In addition to the fundamentals of mapping, the session includes a detailed interactive overview of coordinate conversion, coordinate systems and geodesy. Users are then walked through the features and functions of the software including interactive conversions, point database file conversions, map file conversions, and working with custom coordinate systems. Users are encouraged to bring their own data for these sessions.
