New support for the use of Helmert Time Dependent Shifts, 3 & 7 Parameter Creation, Geospatial PDF, LAS 1.4, Big GeoTiff and Esri GTF along with support for the OGP’s ESPG 8.0 database. Additionally the Geographic Calculator interfaces with the new online version of the OGP registry and supports updates for Indicio 2.2.1, the only way to connect directly into the online EPSG database. 

Desktop 2.5 also introduces direct coordinate transformations which are now included along with pre-defined datum shifts in the Blue Marble geodetic data source. This includes concatenated operations, as well as direct conversions using an affine transformation.  Support for converting multiple columns of coordinate data at one time in the Point Database Conversion job along with many other usability improvements are also introduced in this version.
