Since the early 1990s, Blue Marble Geographics has been a pioneer in the development of powerful and innovative geospatial software. Widely regarded for its expertise in coordinate conversion and file format support, Blue Marble’s products include Geographic Calculator, the paradigm for highly accurate spatial data conversion and advanced projection management; Global Mapper, a fully-functional and affordable GIS application; and the Global Mapper LiDAR Module, a suite of powerful point cloud processing tools.
The Geographic Calculator is recognized as the industry leader in the field of geomatics. Employing the most extensive library of geodetic calculation parameters available commercially, this renowned software is the go-to tool for managing critical location-based data in many fields and industries throughout the world. Global Mapper is a complete, low-cost GIS application that combines a comprehensive array of spatial data processing tools with access to an unparalleled variety of data formats. More than just a data management utility, Global Mapper boasts a surprisingly robust collection of analysis and modeling tools, many of which have been built around the software’s renowned 3D capabilities.
As a complement to Global Mapper’s core functionality, the LiDAR Module provides an array of tools for managing LiDAR and other point cloud datasets. This powerful add-on component provides automatic classification, filtering, feature extraction tools, and much more. For software developers, Blue Marble provides several SDK options for integrating the company’s GIS processing, LiDAR management, and geodetic technology into third party applications.
Product Name: GeoCalc SDK
The GeoCalc Software Development Kit (SDK) is a fully object-oriented class library designed for GIS professionals and software developers. This sophisticated and precise coordinate transformation toolkit allows developers to embed our technology into their custom geospatial software. This technology is the basis of our Geographic Calculator application known worldwide as the standard coordinate transformation tool for thousands of surveys and GIS analysts. We offer the underlying coordinate transformation capability of the Geographic Calculator within GeoCalc, a powerful Geodetic engine available for your own application or software development project.
Product Name: GeoCore SDK
GeoCore provides software developers with powerful coordinate transformation capabilities as an embedded solution within a custom made software application. GeoCore offers the most reliable and tested coordinate parameter definition library and delivers the high accuracy GIS experts have come to rely on within the GeoCalc® library. Additionally, GeoCore provides developers with the ability to handle both raster and vector file format and geometry manipulation with GeoTranslate® and GeoTransform®.
A powerful geodetic application with particular strength in survey, seismic and energy exploration, The Geographic Calculator is available in Windows 32-bit or 64-bit versions. In addition to point to point, a spreadsheet interface, and file conversion, this highly accurate transformation software includes many specialized tools such as Canadian DLS (Dominion Land Survey) Land Grid tools, Seismic Survey Conversion tools, Area of Use tools for guiding users, HTDP, Geoid Creation tools, and much more. The Geographic Calculator supports a wide range of file formats with support from the largest geodetic parameter database available anywhere. When transformations have to be correct, consistent and certifiable, GIS professionals around the world choose the Geographic Calculator.
Global Mapper is an affordable and easy-to-use GIS application that offers access to an unparalleled variety of spatial datasets and provides just the right level of functionality to satisfy both experienced GIS professionals and beginning users.
The Global Mapper LiDAR Module is an optional enhancement to the software that provides numerous advanced LiDAR processing tools, including automatic point cloud classification, automatic extraction of buildings, trees, and powerlines, cross-sectional viewing and point editing, custom digitizing or extraction of 3D line and area features, dramatically faster surface generation, LiDAR QC, and much more.
Global Mapper Mobile is a powerful GIS data viewing and field data collection application for iOS that utilizes the device's GPS capability to provide situational awareness and locational intelligence for remote mapping projects.
Product Name: Global Mapper SDK
Leverage the power of Global Mapper with the Global Mapper Software Developer Kit (SDK)! Software developers can improve existing software, create custom stand-alone applications, or enhance the standard version of Global Mapper with custom extensions.
The Global Mapper SDK provides a Windows DLL which allows much of the functionality of Global Mapper to be accessed from third party applications. The SDK includes both native 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs, so you can target any Windows system. The Global Mapper SDK is a standard Windows DLL and can be called from just about any programming language on a Windows platform, including Visual C++, Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Java with JNI.
Global Mapper SDK synchronizes the software developer toolkit with Global Mapper desktop software releases, which enables a more consistent release cycle. This ensures that software developers are able to work with the most current features and functions introduced to the desktop version of the software.
