Vancouver, BC, CANADA, 23 December 2009 — Galdos Systems Inc. announced today that an exclusive distribution partnership agreement has been signed with Blue Marble Geographics. The agreement gives Blue Marble Geographics exclusive rights to distribute the Galdos CRS Registry, based on the INdicioTM Web Registry catalogue product, to the oil and gas industry.
Galdos’ INdicioTM CRS Registry provides complementary technology to Blue Marble’s coordinate conversion products, allowing users to store and use their coordinate system data. The INdicioTM CRS Registry is the base technology currently being used by Shell Oil and the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP) in their Geodetic Parameter Registry, to provide an open standards-based registry of coordinate reference systems (CRS) and units of measure definitions. Shell Oil is a customer of both Galdos Systems Inc. and Blue Marble Geographics.
“Galdos Systems is very happy to have Blue Marble Geographics as our exclusive representative for the CRS Registry in the Oil and Gas industry,” said Ron Lake, Galdos Chairman and CEO. “It is a great combination of a leading client (Blue Marble Desktop) and a leading web service (Galdos INdicioTM). We look forward to a very successful partnership with Blue Marble.”
“Blue Marble is pleased to be working with Galdos. Our expertise and experience in providing software and services such as the Galdos CRS Registry to address the challenges of securely and efficiently managing geodetic data make this relationship a great fit,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. “Gone are the days of Access databases and flat file tools. Companies that need secure, proprietary, efficient and scalable geodetic databases will find the coupling of the Geographic Calculator and Galdos CRS Registry to be an invaluable tool.”
