Blue Marble’s GeoCalc engine is the recognized benchmark for efficient and accurate coordinate management. As the geodetic foundation of countless popular software titles, including Blue Marble’s Geographic Calculator, GeoCalc provides GIS, GPS, surveying, engineering, and mapping applications with the foremost coordinate transformation capabilities. The GeoCalc database offers access to over 12,000 coordinate system objects including linear and angular units, ellipsoids, geodetic datums, and coordinate reference systems. GeoCalc also contains advanced geomatic tools such as vertical datums, grid shifts, time-dependent coordinate transformation models (HTDP), and the ability to generate custom best-fit transformations and custom coordinate objects of any type.
"This update to GeoCalc includes the usual host of projections, updates to things like HTDP and VDatum," stated Patrick Cunningham, Blue Marble President. "But it features a new JSON wrapper class for accessing the forthcoming GeoCalc Cloud Webservice. This will enable GeoCalc developers to tie into our web hosted version of GeoCalc for updates or to tie into their own hosted version of the GeoCalc API. We’re very excited about the possibilities for our customers."
