“Global Energy Mapper is a powerful data conversion solution and so much more,” stated Blue Marble’s President Patrick Cunningham.  “We are very excited about this release as it has been an opportunity to begin to combine two great software companies, a partnership with Spatial Energy and our expertise in the Geospatial energy software market, while expanding the power of affordable GIS software.”

Along with the support for seven types of spatial databases and the ability to consume WFS (Web Feature Services) and WMTS (Web Map Tile Services) Global Energy Mapper can both publish and consume massive amounts of data.  Delivering a tool with a total file format support of around 200 formats, at a starting price of less than four hundred dollars makes it a truly complementary utility for any GIS toolbox.
