Grid Translator Pro for ArcGIS

Try it Grid Translator Pro 3.5 for ArcGIS® : See what's new in this release.

Grid Translator Pro (GTP) for ArcGIS® is a stand alone solution for ArcGIS® users to enable a wide range of raster and imaging formats within the ArcGIS® suite products. ArcGIS® is a family of products developed by ESRI Inc. including desktop and server products. A 10 days fully functioning version of Grid Translator Pro for ArcGIS® can be downloaded at:  Try it!

To purchase Grid Translator Pro for ArcGIS® you can now do it online:  Purchase it!

GTP for ArcGIS® opens all the functionalities of ArcGIS® to more than 90 raster formats including the formats of the major GIS industry products: Idrisi, Surfer, PCI, Erdas, Vertical Mapper, Geosoft and MapInfo. With GTP for ArcGIS®, the user can import seamlessly a GIF image, a SRTM dataset, a SPOT image or a Surfer grid within the same process and the same tool.

GTP for ArcGIS® is built with ArcGIS® users in mind to allow them leverage their investment on ArcGIS® products and take advantage of the increasingly available and free data over the Internet. Examples of such data are: SRTM data (world wide), GTOPO30 (world wide) and SDTS (USA).

gtp for arcgis

Whether you have a raster dataset produced by Surfer, Idrisi, PCI, Vertical Mapper, Geosoft or ENVI, a satellite image (SPOT, Radar, NOAA, NITF), a nautical chart (BSB), a bitmap image (GIF, Bitmap, Jpeg, PixMap), or a DEM (SRTM, SDTS, USGS DEM, GTOPO30, DTED); GTP for ArcGIS® will bring these data to ArcGIS® image format with few clicks.

In addition of importing raster datasets, GTP for ArcGIS® can export ArcGIS® grids into 2 different standard GIS formats enabling ArcGIS® grids to be used by external applications.

Using an original design GTP for ArcGIS® import or/and export ArcGIS® grids using an automated and generic process. The import/export process is batch oriented allowing users to create ArcGIS® grids from multiple datasets and from/to a wide range of data formats using a single and unified user interface.

What's new in GTP 3.5 for ArcGIS® ?

• GTP 3.5 is now available as a native 64 Bits Application. We still offer our 32 Bits application as well. You have the choice to take advantage of large memory available to 64 Bits applications or continue using our 32 Bits application as well.

• New functionality is added to support creating 'crash' files called Minidump in case 'Grid Translator Pro' encountered an issue and stoped responding or crashed.

• Added support for 5 new formats that can be imported into ArcGIS:

- Azavea Raster Grid format

- CTable2 datum grid shift

- LandCover (.lcv) format

- OziExplorer Map files

- IRIS format: products generated by IRIS weather radar software

• Enhanced current support of multiple formats:

- Added support for ECW SDK 5 and enhanced performance on large datasets.

- Added support for huge files (>2GB) for GEOS2 datasets.

- Refreshed Internal libtiff and libgeotiff libraries that support Tiff files handling.

- Multiple enhancements to many of the currently supported formats.

• Fixed an issue that was causing some .zip, .gzip and .tar file to not be handled properly.
