Gardiner, Maine – February 17, 2011 - Blue Marble Geographics (
www.bluemarblegeo.com) announces the release of GeoCore 2.0, the all-in-one data conversion developer tool kit for geospatial data. The updated version of GeoCore includes the latest versions of GeoTransform, GeoCalc, and GeoTranslate software development toolkits. With these three products combined into GeoCore, users can seamlessly work with any Blue Marble data conversion toolkits in the same development environment to build powerful geospatial software. Whether your application needs coordinate, vector, CAD, raster, 2D or 3D geospatial data, GeoCore enables developers to address a variety of unique data transformation challenges, quickly and efficiently freeing up time to work on your core offering. Within GeoCore 2.0, developers will have access to GeoCalc 6.4.5 coordinate transformation library and toolkit, which now has support for HTDP time dependent shifts, Alberta Township System (ATS) land grids, as well as new Geoid definitions, and many other features.
Another exciting GeoCore feature is GeoTransform 6.1. This includes new interoperability components that allows sharing data between GeoTransform and GeoCalc applications, improved coordinate system reading and writing for Esri, and Erdas’ ERMapper coordinate system definitions, Digital Elevation Model support, and Blue Marble’s Projection Recovery Tool technology, which helps recover lost coordinate reference system from legacy datasets. The final component of GeoCore is the most recent version of GeoTranslate 5.1, the Blue Marble vector file conversion toolkit. Developers will also find within GeoTranslate the latest vector file Projection recovery technology, and spatial database read/write support for Esri ArcSDE, File and Personal Geodatabase, Oracle Spatial and PostGIS Spatial.
GeoCore gives software developers the coordinate transformation and definition powers GIS experts have come to rely on with GeoCalc, plus the ability to handle all of your raster and vector file format and geometry needs with GeoTranslate and GeoTransform. OEM Partners for Blue Marble span many verticals in geospatial software and include Landmark Graphics, Merrick and Company, Avenza Systems, Optech Inc, Inova, and many others. Look for these new features in their software over the next few years.
“With this release of GeoCore we are providing our developer customers with most of the core technology available in the Blue Marble Desktop,” explained Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. “Our OEM partners are gaining so much opportunity here, we are really excited to see what new features / functions they will release over the coming year.”
