The GEOINT Symposium 2016 attracted a great many exhibitors all focused on providing excellent resources for the geo-intelligence community. Tools for mobility, analytics, cloud, open source, business and location intelligence, moving data back and forth between unclassified and top security listings, and much more abound in this showcase of commercial offerings.

In a conversation with George Demmy, CTO of TerraGo, GISCafe Voice learned about the release of OpenGeoPDF technology, now available with TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS, TerraGo Composer and TerraGo Toolbar.
During the week of September 15th, GISCafe Voice will run a special feature blog on the topic, “Satellite Imaging.”
George Demmy, CTO, TerraGo answered some questions for GISCafe Voice about the company’s recently announced TerraGo Workgroups, a subscription bundle that brings GeoPDF collaboration capabilities to smaller groups with flexible, cost-effective plans that meet their special requirements.
A geomark is the recording of a localization on a map. According to Esri ”one Geomark identifies a particular geographical localization, which you wish to save and to reuse later”. A Geomark is equivalent to a GIS feature and can be stored in the .twz file format. That file format store features geometries, attributes, forms, blanks and attachments. Forms are GUI elements used in the PDF world to edit those feature attributes. GeoMark Export lets you export either selected or all visible features from all the feature layers selected and currently, all layers are enabled for editing in the PDF world and any hyperlinks or hot links present in ArcMap become attachments in the .twz file.
The following video talks about a collaboration between Esri ArcGIS and TerraGo using the Geomarks.
According to Frost & Sullivan analyst Daniel Longfield: “The explosion in the collection of advanced imagery and other spatial data and its consumption by non-GIS experts necessitates solutions to make data-rich intelligence more conveniently available and actionable by the broader enterprise and in the field.”
A significant technology and release cycle characterize the latest 6.0 release of TerraGo. According to CEO Rick Cobb, the company has released the first version of their TerraGo SDK – a modular functionality that you can use through a service, a rapid dynamic link library. “Every major function we perform can be plugged into someone else’s app, into the cloud or some other server based app,” said Cobb. “The SDK is being deployed by GeoEye this summer so when someone goes to the GeoEye iCloud services based platform they will be able to use TerraGo to make collaborative GeoPDF images.”
