Gardiner, Maine — July 20, 2007 – Blue Marble Geographics (www.bluemarblegeo.com) is pleased to announce they will be offering Applied Geodesy training for both their Geographic Calculator and Geographic Transformer products during the week of September 24th. These classes will take place in conjunction with the GITA GIS for Oil & Gas Conference in Houston, TX. The daylong sessions are in-depth training courses based on these two powerful data conversion applications. Each 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 choose to attend these courses for the geodesy training alone. Here is a chance to not only educate oneself on the foundations of geodesy and mapping concepts, but also learn how to harness the power of Blue Marble software.
Over the last ten years, the Geographic Calculator has become the standard tool for coordinate conversion worldwide. You should have this product in your toolbox, and the skills to leverage its power! The class includes a detailed interactive overview of coordinate conversion, coordinate systems and geodesy. Users are encouraged to bring their own data with which to explore the features and functions of the software, including interactive conversions, point database file conversions, map file conversions, and working with custom coordinate systems.
“Master Raster” with Blue Marble’s image georeferencing, reprojection, tiling and mosaicking tool, the Geographic Transformer. Learn to use the Transformer in this compact training session, which covers the entire functionality of the application. Students are encouraged to use their own data to familiarize themselves with, and master, key image management skills. Learn how to read, understand, and properly reference and reproject raster data, from simple to complex conversions, mosaic and tile out imagery, and work through batch processes.
