Academic Licensing for Global Mapper and Geographic Calculator

Academic Programs

Blue Marble applications are ideally suited for GIS education and instruction, especially when GIS is a component of a broader field of study.

By balancing powerful data processing and analysis functionality with simplicity of design, Global Mapper allows teachers to focus on the practical application of spatial technology rather than using valuable classroom time teaching students how to operate the requisite software.

For students needing a comprehensive introduction to the field of geodesy or coordinate system management, there is no better tool than Geographic Calculator. This powerful software is designed to ensure accuracy and consistency in any geospatial data management process

Free Access to GIS and Geodetic Software

Blue Marble's generous academic licensing program provides complementary access to both Global Mapper and Geographic Calculator for U.S. and Canadian Schools and Colleges. Discounted licensing is also available to academic institutions outside North America.
