Atlanta, GA – July 7, 2008 – TerraGo Technologies, the visionary provider of tools, technology and know-how for building collaborative geospatial applications (GeoApps), announced today that it has signed an Alliance Agreement with Adobe Systems Incorporated. As part of the agreement, Adobe will provide support for TerraGo’s GeoPDF in the new Adobe Acrobat 9 software. In addition, TerraGo will fully support consumption of geo-enabled PDF files from Adobe and other vendors, allowing customers to easily build and deliver GeoApps for use by anyone, anywhere, regardless of data format or application source.

“Our expanded relationship comes at an exciting time when the demand for geo-enabled PDFs and GeoApps is increasing significantly,” said Richard M. Cobb, president and CEO of TerraGo Technologies. “In working with a global leader such as Adobe, who provides the best platform for geospatial documents, we are confident customers will benefit greatly through the development of innovative new geospatial tools and technology. This alliance further demonstrates TerraGo’s commitment to providing collaborative solutions that meet the unique needs of geospatial data users who are often not GIS experts.”

“As long-time developers of solutions on the Acrobat platform, TerraGo has for several years delivered value to customers who need to consume geospatially-enabled documents in a widely available format,” said Rick Brown, director of Acrobat product management, Business Productivity Business Unit, Adobe. “With support for consuming GIS attributes in PDF now natively available in Acrobat 9 and Adobe Reader 9, TerraGo’s solutions will be even more broadly accessed by existing and new customers alike.”

TerraGo, now a Gold Level Adobe Partner and Adobe LiveCycle reseller, expects to further expand its geospatially enabled offerings through close integration with the rich capabilities of the LiveCycle suite of server products.
