The TerraGo Composer™ suite consists of two separate applications that extend Adobe Acrobat so you can create information-rich GeoPDF maps and imagery, 3D GeoPDF, and GeoPDF MapBooks. With the power of GeoPDF, you can collaborate and share geospatial information with those at edge of your enterprise, as well as everyone in between.
TerraGo Composer™ gives organizations the power to easily create, edit and dynamically update digital maps, images and GeoPDF MapBook products, simply and cost-efficiently. With GeoPDF MapBook, anyone with access to Adobe Reader can leverage the TerraGo Toolbar to use and update geospatial data in the field. Because most people are already familiar with the look and feel of Adobe Reader, TerraGo solutions are especially powerful for organizations that need to share complex geospatial data with users who have minimal exposure to traditional mapping software.
TerraGo Composer is currently being used by some of the world's leading organizations, including USDA Foreign Agricultural Services, US Federal Emergency Management Agency, United States Army Geospatial Center, United States Army Corps of Engineers, Canadian Department of Defense, WBI Holdings, Lockheed Martin, FM Global Financial Services, and NE Utilities.
Some of the biggest challenges with elevation data such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data include large file sizes and the need for a user to have knowledge of sophisticated viewer software in order to access and interact with the data files. As a result, only a limited number of people are able to take advantage of the collected data – until now.
TerraGo has applied its years of experience in working with large, complex 2D GIS maps and images to the 3D world with its TerraGo 3D Composer™ software. Now, virtually anyone who knows how to use PDF files can access and interact with LiDAR and other sources of rich geospatial data. And with the dramatic increase in elevation data collection in recent years, this ability for more people to share and easily understand the data is becoming increasingly important.
