For over two decades, the company’s Geographic Calculator and Global Mapper products have gained a loyal and dedicated worldwide following among energy companies both large and small.

The Blue Mable presentation, which is scheduled for 10:30 am on Wednesday September 14th, will showcase the powerful coordinate conversion and datum transformation capabilities of Geographic Calculator and its application in oilfield operations. Attendees will have an opportunity to see some of the latest features and functions in the application including the ability to read coordinate system definitions directly from a PetrelTM CTL database and the introduction of the new online GeoCalc Geodetic Registry for frequent geodetic datasource updates.
