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.

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.

Lately, my team has been getting a lot of calls from both drone service companies and end users alike.  In fact, in a recent example, I had a company specializing in creating some of the best and smallest LIDAR sensors available call me up looking for a solution.  Unlike some, they are a relatively sophisticated user of airborne sensors and platforms.  Their issue was creating and delivering a valuable final product to the customer, a market leading railroad.
