Blue Marble Geographics of Gardiner, Maine, US the developers and providers of geographic software products has recently announced the release of Geographic Transformer 5.1 Extension for MapInfo Professional. Live demonstrations at MapWorld 2005 will be available on April 7th.
The Geographic Transformer allows users to easily establish an “image-to-world” relationship between image and map coordinates and reproject an image into a georeferenced image map. The Transformer is perfect for handling a variety of image data sources including scanned paper maps, aerial photos, and satellite imagery and is used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts of all skill levels at universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, and military organizations.
This extension allows MapInfo Professional users the reliability, accuracy and power of the Transformer’s geo-referencing and reprojection capabilities right inside their MapInfo workspace, making image manipulation quick and convenient. The Transformer’s advanced reprojection capabilities optimize MapInfo’s existing image referencing functionality and allow for extremely accurate results. This process is essential for working with raster data where accuracy is critical. Projects focused on asset tracking and management, 911 or homeland security, military and government, retail market analysis and risk management all benefit from advanced accuracy.
