John Timar remembers being approached by an Army officer at GEOINT 2016 in Orlando, Florida -- before the official launch of TerraGo Magic.
"He focused on doing nautical charts, mapping, Riverine stuff, and a week before GEOINT 2016, he hired an integrator to develop a mobile app for him to the tune of millions of dollars a year,” said Timar, TerraGo’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “I was showing him (plans for) TerraGo Magic, and I said to him, ‘Let me guess, you want on-line, off-line maps? You want GPS accuracy? You want forms to minimize human error? You want smart forms? You want tasking, interaction with the field? You want collaboration?’ "
Timar went on and on, and each time the engineer nodded “yes, yes, yes.”
