The program TRANSDAT and the function library GeoDLL supports NTv2 standard Coordinate Transformations with high accuracy.
Amongst others the NTv2 gridfile BeTA2007 can be used for transformations within Germany with results in sub-meter accuracy.
The gridfile is provided by the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Vermessungsverwaltungen der Länder der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (ADV), along with a documentation and a set of test data.
The test data contain 31 spaced points on the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany in different variations with coordinates in both Reference Systems DHDN90 and ETRS89.
The test data are provided by the ADV for the verification of the computational accuracy of transformation solutions with external software. The results do not make a statement about the accuracy of the transformation system BeTA2007. Due to the system with BeTA2007 a nationwide transformation accuracy in sub-meter range can be realized. For allocated areas even an accuracy in the decimeter and centimeter range can be achieved.
Comparative calculations with the test data of the ADV, done by the engineering office Killet Software Ing.-GbR, attest to the software TRANSDAT and GeoDLL a very good self-consistency. Here are the results:
The good result is not surprising, since for the calculations strict formulas are used only.
The Coordinate Transformations are performed according to publications of Maarten Hooijberg (1997 and 2008).
The NTv2 date change is made following publications of D. R. Junkins and S. A. Farley (1995).
The comparative calculations were done with the program TRANSDAT indeed, but they are also valid for the function library GeoDLL. These are used by the program TRANSDAT for the necessary geodetic calculations. The libraries allow users to include Coordinate Transformations with high accuracy in their own programs.

TRANSDAT / GeoDLL
The program and the DLL now support all HARN / HPGN Reference Systems of the United States.
The latest versions of the programs TRANSDAT and SEVENPAR support language files for the programs interface. Since the language dependent texts are managed in external files, new languages can be added at any time by creating new language files. Every user of the program now can compile language files for himself and our customers.
