Blue Marble Geographics has announced the release of a new version of the world’s most recognized coordinate conversion libraries, GeoCalc.Net. This fully object-oriented version of Blue Marble’s coordinate conversion libraries was created to meet the needs of cutting-edge Windows programmers. Blue Marble Geographics of Gardiner, Maine is a developer and provider of geographic software products. Blue Marble’s coordinate conversion technology is used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software companies, universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, and military organizations. This version of GeoCalc provides a much-needed solution for many of the user’s complex problems, like, finding a drag-and-drop component use for their .NET applications.
As an object-oriented component, GeoCalc.Net relies upon an XML data source, and may be easily added to existing .NET applications. It contains complete EPSG v6.5 support (European Petroleum Survey Group) and provides support for WKT (well-known text) definitions. This product will support all previous coordinate system classifications, in addition to direct datum shifts that do not use WGS84 as a stepping-stone. This proves most useful when European systems are required.
