The French Public Geological Survey geo-references their entire image dataset Geographic Transformer

Blue Marble Geographics has announced that their Geographic Transformer was used to georeference and tile the entire digital image dataset of the French Public Geological Survey. The project was conducted for the Bureau of Geography and Mining Research by IMAGIS Méditerranée of Nimes, France.

Approximately 1100 images were geo-referenced to Lambert Conformal Conic II and a local French Lambert Zone, then mosaicked into over 5000 tiles. Since this project has been completed, nearly 60 GB of data has been made available to licensed users of the organization.

The Geographic Transformer is a complete solution for establishing an “image-to-world” relationship between image and map coordinates. It allows you to quickly and easily geo-reference, re-project and mosaic image files. The Geographic Transformer is compatible with most common GIS software applications including as ArcView, ArcInfo, Microstation,
MapInfo, AutoCAD and others while supporting a wide range of standard image formats.
