GeoConverter - Free Online Geospatial Data Converter
Entry ID: GeoConverter

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: GeoConverter is a static geospatial file data format converter and coordinate transformer. It is running as a webapplication and designed to be used by technical users who casually have to convert GIS and GPS data. Possible source GIS vector file formats are mostly the same as the target file formats (see the FAQ below).

GeoConverter is based on the FWTools (GDAL 1.5.0b1, FWTools 2.0.2, released 2007/12/05), especially on OGR2OGR as documented in the OGR pages. It's possible that in the near future GeoConverter get's an additional machine-machine interface and this would be a typical Web Processing Service (WPS).
