GeoSpatial Experts Leverages Blue Marble GeoCore Technology
Gardiner, Maine – August 20th, 2010 – Blue Marble Geographics (bluemarblegeo.com) is pleased to announce that Geospatial Experts has integrated GeoCore into their flagship geotagging and photo mapping product, GPS-Photo Link. GeoSpatial Experts, developers of the first photomapping software solution, introduced GPS-Photo Link 5.0 in July 2010. Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software companies, universities, oil and gas companies, civil engineering, surveying, technology, enterprise GIS groups, government and military organizations.
GPS-Photo Link is PC-based software that maps your photos, working with virtually any digital camera coupled with a GPS. It allows users to map their photographs, generate watermarked photos, and create customizable reports to share information. Functionality can be accessed through an ArcGIS extension or as a standalone product. The new version 5.0 outputs to ESRI Enterprise Geodatabase, Access files and PDF files as well as ESRI Shapefiles, Google Earth, MSWord and Web pages available in previous versions. Integrated tools licensed from Blue Marble enable GPS-Photo Link users to convert coordinate points to and from any map projection and datum. Blue Marble GeoCore is an all in one geospatial data translation toolkit that supports coordinate, geometry, vector, CAD, raster, and LiDAR data. GeoCore gives software developers the ability to embed accurate coordinate transformation methods within any custom GIS software program. GIS experts have to come to rely on with the GeoCalc library, plus the ability to handle all of their raster and vector file format and geometry needs with GeoTranslate and GeoTransform.
“We need to provide extensive datum and projection support for our GPS-Photo Link customers”, said Rick Bobbitt, President of GeoSpatial Experts. “Some of our users have unique requirements such as the National Parks Service in Alaska and our international customers, and we need to provide them with high accuracy transformations. We chose to use Blue Marble GeoCore because it is the industry leader for datum and projection calculations.”
“Blue Marble is very excited to announce the integration of our GeoCore technology within the GPS-Photo Link software product”, said Adam Hill, Account Manager at Blue Marble Geographics. “In leveraging GeoCore, GeoSpatial Experts will be providing reliable coordinate transformation and GIS data conversion functionality directly to their end users. Bringing GeoSpatial Experts on, as a core customer of our technology is another testament to the spectrum of industries that Blue Marble technology spans (i.e. Oil & Gas, Mining, Government, Engineering & GIS/GPS Software Providers, etc).”
