[Indiemapper] Announcing: indieprojector

by David Heyman on May 12, 2009

Today, we are pleased to announce the release of our free geographic projection and data conversion tool: indieprojector.

For indieprojector, we took three core indiemapper features:

  1. SHP / KML import
  2. Geographic projections
  3. SVG export

… and combined them into a single stand-alone web application. Indieprojector lets you load multiple SHP or KML files, reproject them to one of 11 geographic projections and export them to SVG for use in a vector graphics editing program. We’ve also included lots of information on each projection plus filtering tools to help you select the best projection for your individual project.

We’re very excited to be offering a preview of indiemapper before it’s release at the end of the summer and we hope indieprojector is useful for your day-to-day mapping work. Check out the indieprojector screencast and please take some time to give us some feedback and let us know what you think. We look forward to hearing from you.

Enjoy indieprojector!

UPDATE: A new version of indieprojector has been released which includes support for NetworkLink tags in KML, layer re-ordering and various minor UI and bug fixes.

    Looks great… when or where have you posted documentation? I am very interested to use this, to give each nation a specific value from a data set I have developed. Thanks!
