Geotrans 3.0 Released by NGA

Geotrans 3.0 has been released. Geotrans was the coordinate conversion library used in the first implementation of the GeoPDF Toolbar. I think we used 2.2.3 for the first go around. If you don't know what Geotrans is, it's a coordinate conversion calculator, batch tool, and library. More at the Geotrans homepage.

This latest version has a significantly overhauled coordinate conversion interface implemented in C++ and the Geotrans application looks like it's all Java all the time for the GUI. There are a few bug fixes in there as well.
Geotrans 3.0 in the house!
This is 3.0 with the dead sexy Unix skin. If you're wondering what the acronym MSP stands for, it's Mensuration Services Program. Also, it's nifty that 90 W 30 N has LA in the GARS coordinate string.

The core library descends from a very modular and portable C implementation. It's been C++ized, but that is mainly for the revamp of the coordinate conversion interfaces. 3.0 ships with source code and source data for those who are into that kind of stuff.
