Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 14, 2010
TerraGo Technologies®, a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions, and SPADAC, a leading provider of spatially enhanced technology solutions, have signed a strategic agreement that enables SPADAC to develop and distribute an integrated solution that will enable its EarthWhere® customers to access, customize and distribute mission-critical geospatial assets as GeoPDF® files.
SPADAC’s latest release of EarthWhere, which is scheduled to be released later this month, seamlessly publishes and shares raster data as easy-to-use, portable, and interactive GeoPDF files. In addition, EarthWhere users can catalog and discover GeoPDF files for easier access to specific files in a particular area of interest. GeoPDF files are used by more than 800 organizations today to publish maps and images for geospatial collaboration.
“EarthWhere customers have been requesting this capability as TerraGo GeoPDF files become increasingly popular as the standard by which government and private sector organizations share complex map and image data with mobile workforces and non-technical personnel,” said Peter Borissow, VP of products for SPADAC. “We look forward to working closely with TerraGo as we continue to explore new ways to help our customers expand the value and reach of their GIS investments to the edge of the enterprise.”
According to Chris Watson, VP of marketing and business development for TerraGo, “This partnership brings together the powerful capabilities of SPADAC’s innovative geospatial data management solution with the ease-of-use and collaboration capabilities of TerraGo GeoPDF files. Customers can now more rapidly deploy geospatial assets across all levels of the enterprise by simply enabling users to search a database, select virtually any type of raster data, mark an area of interest, and publish the available data as a GeoPDF file. This grab-and-go access to imagery has been something many government agencies have been requesting for quite some time, and we are pleased to help SPADAC deliver this capability.”
TerraGo GeoPDF files are the most efficient method for quickly deploying geospatial information to end-users throughout an organization, even those operating in the field and those with no GIS expertise. With the TerraGo Toolbar™ or TerraGo Mobile™, users can add information to maps and imagery, share that information with others, and roundtrip new intelligence back to centralized geospatial applications.
SPADAC provides its customers with sophisticated and efficient data management products that offer enterprise-wide formats and applications. Signature Analyst® is an advanced geospatial predictive analytics tool that provides enhanced objectivity by discerning subtle yet powerful and actionable insights, maximizing the likelihood of success. EarthWhere is a geospatial content management tool that catalogs, provisions and disseminates geospatial data.
Under the terms of the agreement, SPADAC will build, maintain and distribute the GeoPDF module, also known as Publisher for EarthWhere. For more information, visit http://www.spadac.com and http://www.terragotech.com.
