US: TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and mobility software, announced today the availability of TerraGo Publisher® for ArcGIS® version 7.4, which includes the ability to create and share GeoPDFs that convey important changes over time for an area of interest, with any type of map or imagery.
“Our customers can share these time-series map layers as a universally available GeoPDF, enabling non-GIS users to measure past conditions, assess changes over time, analyze trends and even project future scenarios,” said Scott Lee, Director of Federal Programs at TerraGo. “Time-enabled GeoPDFs can help deliver important geographic analysis to the widest audience possible, which is incredibly valuable for sharing information with policymakers, agencies, stakeholders and constituents.”
Time-enabled, interactive maps can be utilized in any number of different geographic analysis use cases, including: coastal populations impacted by rising sea levels, progress of recovery efforts for a hurricane disaster zone, forestry and environmental impacts due to policy change, shifting crime patterns in different types of city zones and satellite imagery showing impact of regional military conflicts on local populations, to name a few. Version 7.4 includes a number of additional enhancements and improvements including support for ArcGIS version 10.6.0.
