Blue Marble Geographics announced the release of Geographic Calculator 7.3 and Geographic Transformer 6.1 via the Blue Marble Desktop 2.0, the all-in-one geospatial data management platform for Blue Marble’s popular data transformation tools.

This release will introduce the Spatial Connect 7.3 Module for working with a variety of spatial databases. Whether it is coordinate, vector, or raster data the Blue Marble Desktop allows you to address your data conversion challenges in the same application interface with powerful conversion and transformation tools. Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software companies, universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, government and military organizations. Let the Desktop save your staff time and money by creating new efficient workflows.

Blue Marble Desktop 2.0 introduces the Spatial Connect Module 7.3 giving users the ability to read and write to ESRI Geodatabase, ArcSDE, and Personal and File Geodatabase along with Oracle Spatial and PostGIS native spatial database objects. Spatial Connect is used in conjunction with the Geographic Calculator in the vector file conversion tab enabling individual or batch file work. Blue Marble Desktop 2.0 also has Windows Explorer application integration available for all major GIS and CAD file types – make Blue Marble your default program to open certain formats. There is an updated viewer for area calculation on polygons and view attributes for all features in your data layers.

This release features an upgrade of the Geographic Calculator to version 7.3, which now contains added support for ATS, GARS, and BNG string point data formatting. Performance enhancements for the ESRI / Geographic Calculator extension, additional XLS read write support, and a new arbitrary scale and translation for point database conversion jobs are also featured. Additionally there is a new projection recovery tool for finding the projection information on vector files when there is none present.

The update for Geographic Transformer, 6.1, also contains the new projection recovery tool but for raster datasets. Projection recovery is perhaps more applicable to raster data in that it is far more common for raster data to lose its associated projection information. Use the projection recovery tool to conduct a forensic research of your data to produce a quick list of the most likely candidate projections for your data. This process will save time and money when working with secondary data with lost projection information.
