(PRWEB) February 07, 2012 -- As part of the Distributed Common Ground System – Army (DCGS-A), the U.S. Army has purchased TerraGo®geospatial collaboration software to produce, access, update and share geospatial information and applications in support of warfighter efforts around the world.
DCGS-A is the Army’s premier intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) enterprise for the tasking of sensors, analysis and processing of data, exploitation of data, and dissemination of intelligence (TPED). Under DCGS-A, Army personnel will leverage TerraGo PublisherTM for ArcGIS to produce TerraGo GeoPDF® maps and imagery and ComposerTM for Adobe Acrobat to quickly compile thousands of GeoPDF maps into intelligent, portable, interactive and dynamic digital mapbooks to cover a county or an entire country.
The multi-year, multi-million dollar contract award also includes the TerraGo ToolbarTM to enable warfighters in mission critical roles to use virtually any mobile computer to access and share interactive, compact, portable and intelligent 2D and 3D GeoPDF maps and imagery. TerraGo Toolbar also allows users to easily make georeferenced updates using notes, audio, video, Web services or other information in connected or offline environments without the need for complex systems or advanced GIS training.
In addition, the contract provides Army personnel who use the TerraGo Toolbar with support, training and product updates as part of an enterprise distribution agreement.
“TerraGo Technologies geospatial collaboration software and GeoPDF solutions are among the most widely adopted and proven COTS solutions used in mission critical roles throughout the world,” said Rick Cobb, president and CEO of TerraGo. “We are proud to play a vital role in putting GEOINT in the hands of warfighters and to improve Army geospatial enterprise efficiency, productivity and responsiveness.”
