Based on input from our customers, which now represent more than 800 organizations and over 500,000 users, we are delivering new functionality that enables organizations to make geospatial assets even more portable and actionable
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
TerraGo Technologies, a leading provider of spatial-based collaboration software, announced today that it will preview the release of the new TerraGo Toolbar, TerraGo Publisher and TerraGo Composer solutions in its booth (#206) at the ESRI International Users Conference in San Diego this week. Key enhancements across the product lines are designed to help customers extend the access and application of their geospatial assets to non-GIS oriented users while enabling more seamless geospatial collaboration across the enterprise.
"Based on input from our customers, which now represent more than 800 organizations and over 500,000 users, we are delivering new functionality that enables organizations to make geospatial assets even more portable and actionable," said Rick Cobb, CEO of TerraGo Technologies. "This significant product release gives organizations the ability to take geospatial assets to the edge of their enterprise and back again with enhanced, integrated geospatial collaboration capabilities that work seamlessly across the desktop and mobile platforms. In addition, our server-based solutions are now able to offer grab-and-go access to digital map products from ArcGIS Server to anyone, anywhere, anytime."
TerraGo's suite of software solutions not only enable the publication of any type of geospatial data to a GeoPDF file, but also facilitate the creation of unique geospatial applications for enhanced field-based collaboration.
The following highlights some of the new capabilities across the product lines:
- Seamlessly share geo-located, field-collected intelligence from the TerraGo Toolbar and TerraGo Mobile applications leveraging the new TerraGo Collaboration Payload. With the click of a button, GIS analysts can now select field-captured data and easily import relevant information back into the GIS system of record, including ESRI's ArcGIS platform. The data is time, location and source- stamped, aiding in the effort to manage data and meet compliance requirements.
- Dynamically serve up-to-the-minute geospatial intelligence with TerraGo Composer: Enhancements to TerraGo Composer will enable organizations to serve up-to-the-minute intelligence to field personnel, with the latest data coming in as a new layer in the GeoPDF. Designed in conjunction with FEMA, this capability is ideal for organizations where rapidly changing data needs to be fed to large volumes of non-GIS savvy users in the field.
- Generate collaboration-ready GeoPDF files: With the new release of TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS, all GeoPDF files are created with the TerraGo GeoMark functionality, invoking powerful collaboration capabilities within the free TerraGo Toolbar that is based on the free Adobe Reader.
- Consume and publish virtually any geo-referenced PDF, including those generated according to the proposed geospatial extensions to the ISO 32000 standard as well as the Open Geospatial Consortium (OCG) Best Practice.
Additional capabilities across the TerraGo suite include advanced coordinate system support (including the ability to create custom coordinate systems), as well as performance and usability enhancements.
Organizations interested in learning more about the new suite of solutions from TerraGo Technologies should visit the TerraGo booth (#206) at this week's ESRI International Users Conference. The new products are scheduled to be available for general release at the end of this month.
