TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS Now Includes Advanced Layer Control, International Language Support, and ISO/OGC Specification Options for Publishing GeoPDF

TerraGo® Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions and Esri® Gold Tier partner, has released TerraGo Publisher™ for ArcGIS version 5.6 for both desktop and server environments. TerraGo Publisher extends leading geospatial applications such as Esri ArcGIS® to create highly portable, interactive TerraGo GeoPDF® maps and imagery.

TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS version 5.6 offers significant enhancements and user benefits, including:

  • Compatibility with Esri ArcGIS 10: Customers who have upgraded to ArcGIS 10 can now install TerraGo Publisher 5.6 to create, as well as import and view, GeoPDF maps and imagery.
  • Advanced layer control: The new, advanced layer control in TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS enables GIS professionals to control layer order and select layers to include (or not include) within the GeoPDF export configuration. Once layers are selected they can also be "sealed" to simplify the output for the GeoPDF consumer.
  • Easy options for ISO and OGC specifications: TerraGo Publisher offers a new feature for easily selecting ISO 32000 or Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) specifications for publishing geospatial PDF.
  • Internationalization: TerraGo Publisher now supports internationalization so that the application can be localized in languages other than English. TerraGo is working with strategic partner Hitachi Solutions to offer TerraGo Publisher in Japanese.

"TerraGo is a valuable Esri partner that we work closely with in our efforts to transform the way customers use geospatial intelligence," said Ann Jachim, partner manager at Esri. "TerraGo software and GeoPDF extend Esri ArcGIS 10 to offer a complementary way for mobile users in the field to access geospatial information, capture field data, and share their intelligence with other users."

TerraGo GeoPDF maps and imagery created from TerraGo Publisher are georeferenced versions of standard PDF files, serving as highly portable containers of mapping information, imagery and data from geospatial applications. Mobile users in the field who do not use GIS software and operate in disconnected environments use GeoPDF to exploit valuable geospatial intelligence.

With intuitive applications such as TerraGo Toolbar™ and TerraGo Mobile™, anyone, anywhere can personalize geospatial intelligence, collaborate with other mobile users, and round-trip field data back to the enterprise.

"TerraGo GeoPDF solutions that extend Esri ArcGIS 10 are mission-critical to Esri and TerraGo's joint government and commercial customers," said Jim Sheen, vice president of products and services at TerraGo. "Through working closely with strategic partners such as Esri, TerraGo is accelerating the development of joint solutions and ensuring continued, rapid delivery of innovative and intuitive capabilities for geospatial collaboration."
