The latest version of TerraGo Edge provides full “round trip” support for the Open Geospatial Consortium’s GeoPackage, an open, portable format for exchanging geospatial data seamlessly across vendor platforms and mobile devices
Washington, D.C. – April 7, 2016 – TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration, field engineering and enterprise mobility software, announces the availability of TerraGo Edge 3.9.3, which features full support for OGC GeoPackage, a universal format for sharing maps and geographic data across mobile devices and all platforms. TerraGo Edge enables users to import and export OGC GeoPackage as a SQLite database optimized for performance on iOS and Android devices.
“Because we listened to our customers, we designed TerraGo Edge from “the ground up” to be an open solution for exchanging field engineering, GIS, GPS and asset management data across vendor platforms and devices,” said John Timar, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at TerraGo. “GeoPackage is an important win for customers because it’s a dramatic shift away from proprietary formats and technology. GeoPackage breaks through user dependence based on vendor data lock-in, enables platform-independent data exchange and refocuses customer value on software features and performance.”
The latest TerraGo Edge 3.9.3 release closes the loop for a complete GeoPackage collaboration workflow by allowing Edge app users to import GeoPackage data from a mobile device, collect location-tagged field data and roundtrip the information back to the GIS or other enterprise systems of record.
