Gardiner, Maine — September 8, 2006 – Blue Marble Geographics ( is pleased to announce they will be offering applied geodesy training in their Geographic Calculator class after the GIS for Oil and Gas Conference on Friday, September 22nd. This daylong session is an in-depth training course using one of the most powerful and flexible of data conversion applications available today. The course also features education on the basics of geodesy and mapping which is useful for both the novice or as a refresher for the expert geodesist. In fact, many people take this course just for the geodesy training alone. Here is a chance to not only educate yourself on the foundations of Geodesy and mapping concepts, but learn how to really leverage the power of Blue Marble software.

About the Geographic Calculator: The Geographic Calculator converts individual coordinates, point database files, and vector map files from virtually any coordinate system to any other. You can transform between coordinate systems, calculate the distance and azimuth between two coordinates, and calculate new coordinates at a known distance and azimuth from known coordinates. The Geographic Calculator also automatically computes grid convergence, point scale factor, datum shifts, and grid shifts. Of course, the Geographic Calculator is professionally documented and supported.

The daylong Calculator training 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.
