ATLANTA — May 12, 2010 — TerraGo Technologies®, a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions, announced today the general availability of its TerraGo Publisher™ for GeoMedia version 5 software. TerraGo’s Publisher solution, formerly known as MAP2PDF, gives Intergraph GeoMedia customers the capability to publish complex maps and images as highly portable and interactive GeoPDF® files for easy dissemination and use by field personnel.
The new release provides the benefits of the latest generation of TerraGo software, such as automatic enabling for end users to add GeoMarks to GeoPDF files; seamless interoperability with the latest TerraGo Toolbar™ and Mobile™ solutions; improved publishing control over GeoPDF output; and expanded coordinate system support. Now, maps and imagery can be more easily published and leveraged by field personnel using the TerraGo Toolbar and Mobile applications for more effective intelligence gathering, spatial-based collaboration, and situational awareness.
"TerraGo extends the capabilities of GeoMedia by enabling GIS professionals to push robust geospatial intelligence into the field as industry-standard GeoPDF files, which can be easily accessed and do not require any advanced training," said Vince Smith, GeoMedia desktop product manager at Intergraph. "The latest version of Publisher for GeoMedia enhances the value proposition of TerraGo software to global GeoMedia customers who are increasingly adopting GeoPDF as a standard part of their workflows."
According to Chris Watson, VP of marketing and business development for TerraGo, "We are pleased to continue to enhance the features and capabilities of our GeoMedia solution, as TerraGo and Intergraph partner to advance the value and application of geospatial intelligence. Some of the world’s premiere geospatial organizations depend on the power of GeoMedia and the simplicity of TerraGo GeoPDF files to share mission-critical information across their enterprises."
Key enhancements available in the new TerraGo Publisher for GeoMedia solution include:
