  • Co-ordinate systems and geolocation

    Commercial basemap and geolocation tools lets you bring in aerial data, roads and hybrid aerial-road maps. Geocode and reverse geocode points based on addresses, capture and incorporate data from aerial photography and convert to vector data.

  • Create co-ordinate systems (enhanced)

    Search for or create co-ordinate systems using custom grid files and use modern algorithms for transforming co-ordinate systems. Work with more than 4,000 real-world co-ordinate systems, or define and manage your own custom co-ordinate system. New co-ordinate system definitions are available in real time, increasing the flexibility of working with different co-ordinate systems when managing your infrastructure.
