June 21, 2010

Atlanta, GA, June 21, 2010 -- TerraGo Technologies®, a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions, and CompassTools Inc., serving the GIS industry since 1994, have signed a distribution agreement to sell and service TerraGo's full suite of software solutions, which is designed to help organizations extend the value and application of geospatial assets to the edge of the enterprise. TerraGo solutions create easy-to-use, portable, and interactive GeoPDF® files from complex maps and images, enabling anyone in an organization to use powerful location-based information as well as collect information in a geospatial context.

TerraGo GeoPDF solutions are the most efficient method for quickly deploying geospatial information to end-users throughout an organization, even those operating in the field and those with no GIS expertise. With the TerraGo Toolbar™ or TerraGo Mobile™, users can add information to maps and imagery, share that information with others, and roundtrip field intelligence back to centralized geospatial applications. "By adding TerraGo software and GeoPDF-based solutions to our offering, we are able to help our customers equip their inspectors, first responders, and other field workers with powerful, yet highly portable and interactive, geospatial assets in a mobile environment," said Steve Chiles, CEO of CompassTools.

According to Chris Watson, VP of marketing and business development for TerraGo, "As we work to expand our market reach and partner ecosystem, industry leaders such as CompassTools that specialize in field data collection solutions are an important part of our distribution strategy. CompassTools has a proven track record of equipping mobile workforces with compelling software solutions that improve field productivity and accuracy. With TerraGo Mobile, they are able to extend their offering to those customers who leverage the power and ease-of-use of TerraGo GeoPDF files."

Under the terms of the agreement, CompassTools will sell, service and support the following TerraGo solutions:
  • TerraGo Publisher™ for ArcGIS, which enables organizations to unlock the value of their ArcGIS investments by publishing ArcGIS data as GeoPDF files that can be easily accessed by anyone, anytime, anywhere.
  • TerraGo Composer™, which creates unique, GeoPDF-based applications of spatial data that enable organizations to add their own business context, workflows and data.
  • TerraGo Mobile, which is designed specifically to give field personnel who are not geospatial experts the power to interact with and add intelligence to geo-registered maps and images directly from a handheld mobile device.
