Champions are made in the off-season (now's the time add muscle to your field data collection...)

Organizations seeking to deploy mobile apps for the field workforce tend to experience the same conundrum.  It is a very typical chicken and the egg scenario.  There is a natural tendency to want to invest in new mobile apps during the busy season. You are flush with new projects and tight timelines. You are off the grid, or maybe under the grid, trying to get your work done. At some point, you may experience a common frustration…that is, you are more productive on Facebook than you are with the data collection tools available to you. It is imperative that you modernize your business to stay on top of your game, but bandwidth issues coupled with the downside of getting it wrong encumber your ability to make the switch.

The Evolution of TerraGo’s GeoPDF Software Suite to Version 7.0

The Evolution of TerraGo’s GeoPDF Software Suite to Version 7.0

September 15, 2016

By George Demmy

TerraGo released version 6 of its GeoPDF software suite in the summer of 2011, making the recently released version 7.0 the first nominally “major” release in half a decade. Of course, over the years, we’ve added a bunch of new features both on the production and consumption side, often the two working in concert. The most significant of these, in my opinion, is GeoPackage feature attributes, which has been further extended in 7.0, but there are other compelling features as well, including our ability to configure GeoPDF layers independent of ArcMap’s table of contents, giving the ability to place any ArcMap item on any layer of the author’s choosing, including layers that don’t exist in the ArcMap TOC. We’ve overhauled the UI making it much easier to configure and manage these custom layer configurations in 7.0, and indeed, this is one of the killer features that completely differentiate a rote export process and a serious tool for publishing geospatial information like TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS. Likewise, PubPy – TerraGo’s ArcPy-compatible Python programming language extensions – have been rounded out and coverage deepened.

GIS User Feature – Ten Government Workflows that Benefit from Mobilizing Maps

GIS User Feature – Ten Government Workflows that Benefit from Mobilizing Maps

A hurricane hits and first responders scramble to share maps to dispatch units and coordinate response across agencies.  Personnel on the ground provide real-time location reports of electrical outages, damage assessments and road closings.  New law enforcement resources unfamiliar with the area come from federal and state agencies to assist in the response, guided by detailed maps of alternate roads and population areas. Transportation professionals update evacuation routes for the public maps and work to identify areas suitable for helicopter landings.  Meanwhile the public monitors the constantly changing situation for advisory notices for their neighborhood.
