Sept 16, 2002 – Blue Marble Geographics has announced the release of Geographic Transformer v 4.4. 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. Image data including scanned paper maps, aerial photos, and satellite imagery become powerful when reprojected as image maps for use as a background or base map upon which, other spatial data is overlaid.
Geographic Transformer v 4.4 contains several new enhancements including the highly anticipated ability to read and georeference MrSID, ECW, DOQQ and BIL image formats. The Geographic Transformer already supports TIFF, GeoTIFF, Windows Bitmap, JPEG, PNG, BSB Chart and CADRG. All output image formats can be saved as TIFF, GeoTIFF, Windows Bitmap, JPG or PNG files.
