It is no surprise that today’s geospatial enterprise has gone mobile. Based on rapid advances in mobile solutions for consumers, government and enterprise users, we imagine that the future of geospatial technologies will keep moving in this direction in a very aggressive fashion.
In addition, for geospatial solutions to be truly effective they need to fully support those in the field – from the warfighter to employees dispersed in disconnected environments, providing advanced collaboration for enhancing decision-making.
Late last year, TerraGo announced the release of its TerraGo Mobile for Android solution, which allows users of Android devices running version 3 or above to access and update intelligent, portable, interactive GeoPDF maps and imagery. This includes using georeferenced notes, audio, photo, video and Web services.
What is unique about this solution is that us enables anyone – even the novice GIS user – to collection data in the field using geoforms that can be easily updated and shared with pretty much anyone, anywhere.
Following is a video demonstration of TerraGo Mobile for Android.
