TerraGo Technologies Submits GeoPDF Specification to OGC

Atlanta, GA – September 23, 2008 – TerraGo Technologies, a provider of software solutions that extend the access and application of geospatial data to professional consumers, announced today that it has submitted its GeoPDF® format to the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.® (OGC), an international, voluntary consensus standards organization of 365 companies, government agencies and universities. TerraGo previously opened the GeoPDF specification to Adobe for inclusion in Adobe Reader 9.0 and is concurrently adding support for the proposed extensions to ISO 32000.

“Today’s announcement further demonstrates our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers who require software solutions that leverage open standards,” said Patrick Graves, chief software architect at TerraGo Technologies. “By opening the GeoPDF specification through the OGC, the large number of maps and images that have been published in GeoPDF format by our customers can now be accessed by the entire geospatial community.”

TerraGo software solutions enable peer-to-peer and enterprise collaboration among non GIS-professionals who need geospatial information to make better decisions, respond faster and be more productive. TerraGo customers can extend map, imagery and attribute data to virtually any user, making geospatial application available via the Web, mobile device or desktop. More than 250,000 users leverage the TerraGo Toolbar, and hundreds of terabytes of data are available in GeoPDF format.
