Blue Marble Takes its Highly Successful User Conference on the Road in March 2016

Hallowell, Maine – November 17, 2015 – Blue Marble Geographics ( announced today that its User Conference Road Show will be visiting several cities throughout the U.S. and Canada in early 2016. Motivated by the success of the recent conference in the Washington DC area,  the Blue Marble Team will be hitting the road in March to bring the Blue Marble User Conference (BMUC) experience to as wide an audience as possible. Attendees will have an opportunity to gain insight in to current and future product plans; to hear from interesting and innovative users of Blue Marble’s geospatial tools; to pick up useful tips and tricks for optimizing the application of both Global Mapper and Geographic Calculator; and to participate in the ongoing collaborative development process by providing feedback and requests to the Blue Marble team.

Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation, visualization, and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, energy, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government agencies and academic institutions.

The first stop in the BMUC Road Show will be Houston, TX on Tuesday, March 1st followed by Calgary, AB on Thursday, March 10th, coinciding with annual GeoConvention in that city. Tuesday, March 15th sees the Blue Marble team in the San Francisco Bay area after which the Road Show heads back towards the east coast, stopping in Pittsburgh, PA on Tuesday, March 22nd and finishing the journey in Boston, MA on Tuesday March 29th. Specific venues in each of the cities have yet to be finalized.

The Blue Marble User Conference provides a forum for active and prospective users of the company’s geospatial products to network with like-minded professionals.  For many, including the Blue Marble staff members who attend, the highlight of BMUC is the opportunity to hear from industry experts about their implementation experience and their success stories using Blue Marble technology. Direct communication with customers has always been at the forefront of Blue Marble’s business philosophy and BMUC provides a perfect setting for this dialog. Users learn about the latest features and functions and Blue Marble project managers gather information on the appropriate development strategy to best meet the needs and requirements of the user community.

“In past years we have focused on one or two specific sites for our annual conference,” stated Patrick Cunningham, Blue Marble President. “While many attendees were prepared to travel some distance to these events, we decided that this year it is Blue Marble’s turn to do the traveling. We are excited to be visiting some of our most important markets and we are looking forward to spending time with the Blue Marble community in each of the cities.”
