Enabling GIS for All Users

GIS-lite, as delivered by TerraGo Toolbar with Adobe Reader, enables a variety of questions be answered by the person using the toolbar, rather than taking the time out to track down whoever made the GeoPDF document or whoever owns the data and information that went into the document. Many questions can be answered with very lightweight tools, but are very difficult or even impossible to answer without them. These include:

  • How can I measure distances and areas? Especially when the path is not just a simple line.
  • Where does this document relate to the surrounding geography and larger world? Easily answered with Google Map It, but often hard to answer otherwise.
  • What’s are the essential characteristics about some feature on the map? Possible with feature attributes, but difficult otherwise.
  • What’s under the layer covering the one I’m interested in? Not possible without layer control.

Without self-service answering, providing the answer can involve several people in a chain, or even worse it may not get answered at all.
