Gardiner, Maine — July 15, 2010 — Blue Marble Geographics ( is pleased to announce that Mobile Mapping industry leader Topcon Positioning Systems has selected the Blue Marble Desktop software application to be packaged & integrated within their IP-S2 Mobile Mapping system.

Blue Marble’s Geographic Calculator (Blue Marble Desktop version) software application will be strategically bundled with Topcon’s IP-S2 Mobile Mapping System. In an effort to streamline and manage all customer related LAS (LiDAR) file processing, Topcon has selectively chosen Blue Marble as a comprehensive solution for their IP-S2 customers. Eduardo Falcon, TPS Senior Vice-President of the Emerging Business Unit, said, “By partnering with Blue Marble Geographics, we are giving IP-S2 users an added advantage of translating, integrating and sharing data seamlessly between formats and within their organization, and that will allow for quicker and more efficient use of the precise data they have collected. Our goal is to ultimately simplify the work and increase the capabilities of the IP-S2 user.”
