TerraGo invented and was awarded the patent for the geospatial PDF map. Then we collaborated with Adobe and the Open Geospatial Consortium to promulgate geospatial PDF as an open standard to enable global adoption. We helped create and support OGC best practices and the ISO 32000 standard. But we didn’t stop there….
GeoPDF is in fact a geospatial PDF, and it’s so much more.
TerraGo is the only vendor to supply numerous extensions to geospatial PDF while maintaining full compliance with the geospatial PDF standards. One of numerous examples, GeoPDF fully supports the OGC’s GeoPackage encoding standard, the future of cross-platform geospatial data exchange. You won’t find that in just any plain old vanilla geospatial PDF.
GeoPDF. The industry standard that’s more than a standard.
Based on its unique position as both a standards-compatible and evolving, feature-rich solution, GeoPDF has become a de facto global standard as a means to share interactive maps and imagery. Best of all, end users get powerful GIS features with free, universal software.
