National Geographic releases TOPO! Xport Pro software

From civil engineers to surveyors to environmental planners to utility managers, users of geospatial software have a new tool to quickly add the highest-quality topographic maps to their projects with National Geographic Maps’ TOPO! Xport Pro. This one-stop, easy-to-use software enables users to add seamless topographic maps to any software that supports standard raster file formats. The maps are actual USGS quads that have been georeferenced and enhanced with up-to-date streets and roads and 3-D hill shading. The maps immediately provide context for other geospatial information and are ideal for reports, presentations, or use in the field.

TOPO! Xport Pro is compatible with a wide range of spatially-enabled software including products from Autodesk, ESRI, Microsoft, Microstation, Integraph, MapInfo and more.

TOPO! Xport Pro includes several layers of maps: two National Geographic atlas layers, USGS 1:500,000- and 1:100,000-scale topographic maps for the entire U.S., and up-to-date street overlays from TeleAtlas/Geographic Data Technology, Inc. (GDT). Users can turn roads on and off and add street and road names with a single click. Also included in TOPO! Xport Pro is the TOPO! State Series dataset which provides the highest resolution 1:24,000-scale USGS topographic maps for a specific state or region. Each quad in the series employs true-color imaging to optimize raster maps for viewing and printing.
