TerraGo Technologies Releases Mobile GIS Software for Field Data Collection
October 16, 2008
Atlanta, Ga. - TerraGo Technologies, a provider of software solutions that extend the access and application of geospatial data to professional consumers, has released TerraGo Mobile, a geospatial mobile application designed specifically for non-GIS users. Compatible with Windows Mobile 5 and 6 operating systems, the solution delivers interactive, intelligent maps and images in geo-enabled PDF format directly to personnel in the field, enabling them to collect and collaborate with geospatial data to respond faster, make better decisions and be more productive.
Initiated as a research and development project for In-Q-Tel, the independent strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the mission of the broader U.S. Intelligence Community, TerraGo Mobile is now generally available. TerraGo has experienced significant interest in the solution from other military and intelligence organizations, as well as those in the emergency response, utilities, oil/gas and natural resource management industries.
TerraGo Mobile allows non-GIS experts in the field to interact with and add intelligence (photos, video, audio, comments and completed forms) to geo-registered maps and images directly from their mobile device. This information can then be shared with other mobile or desktop users and sent back to the GIS department via email. In addition, TerraGo Mobile incorporates advanced GPS technology and integrates KML (Google Earth) files to create a more robust experience for all types of users. Field personnel need only know how to use the Windows interface and open a PDF to be instantly productive.
