Logo: Geographic Calculator 2019Blue Marble Geographics has launched its 2019 Geographic Calculator, which features a universal copy and paste function, a new angular unit conversion tool, support for NADCON 5.0 and updated seismic survey conversion functionality.

According to Blue Marble, the foundation of the Geographic Calculator’s geodetic data processing functionality is the embedded GeoCalc datasource, which is continually revised and improved with updates through the online GeoCalc Geodetic Registry. The datasource included in the 2019 release mirrors the most current EPSG database definitions.

The calculator’s copy and paste function can be used to quickly capture data for use in a third-party application or to insert new coordinate values in an existing job. The latest version also includes a new tool for accurately converting between various angular units and offers expanded seismic survey conversion capability with improved P1/11 format support and additional SEG-Y format handling for coordinate scalar values, the company added.

The 2019 Geographic Calculator also includes support for NADCON 5.0 from the National Geodetic Survey, providing 3D coordinate transformations within the National Spatial Reference System, as well as several new projection methods.

The calculator also boasts a refreshed interface with new icons and graphic elements for various jobs and tools, as well as optimized architecture for the Windows 10 environment.

“With the imminent approach of the North American Terrestrial Reference Frame in 2022 the need for highly accurate geodetic tools has become more important than ever,” said Patrick Cunningham, president at Blue Marble. “Geographic Calculator continues to lead the way in this field and as is evident in release of the 2019 edition, we are continually raising the bar by providing ever more powerful tools combined with the world’s most expansive geodetic database.”

Blue Marble Geographics is a mapping software company based in Hallowell, Maine. The company offers a number of GIS software solutions, including data conversion, software development kits, low cost GIS, educational resources, 3D analysis, coordinate transformation and GPS.
