New extensions make it easier than ever for Esri ArcGIS® users to create web-based portals that provide on-demand, customized maps and lightweight GIS applications to all enterprise and mobile users
Washington, D.C. – September 24, 2015 – TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and mobility software, announced today the availability of TerraGo Publisher® for ArcGIS® Server version 6.8. The release provides powerful new features that help companies create map portals and web services that extend the power of ArcGIS to all enterprise users.
For ArcGIS users and developers, TerraGo Publisher includes a new Python package, called PubPy, which exposes TerraGo Publisher functions to ArcGIS’s extension language ArcPy®. PubPy can be accessed from both ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for Server. This enables the easy creation and automation of portable, interactive maps that are accessible as web services. For end users, this means on-demand, self-service access to customized maps and data. This gives non-GIS users access to the exact map they need, in desktop and mobile environments, in both online and disconnected workflows.
“TerraGo’s new Python functions provide easy-to-use export and configuration capabilities through ArcPy interfaces, which can be published as web services,” said George Demmy, Chief Technical Officer at TerraGo. “PubPy represents a major leap forward in simplifying and automating the creation of free, lightweight GIS applications for non-GIS users.”
With TerraGo Publisher, GIS users are able to create and share interactive OpenGeoPDF maps accessible by any user with universal, free software. OpenGeoPDF is a collection of technologies that combine open spatial database features and application logic within portable, intelligent maps. In essence, OpenGeoPDF is the incorporation of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) GeoPackage standard to store feature attributes in a universally accessible PDF container.
