TerraGo, a provider of dissemination and collaboration software for defense and intelligence agencies, announced the availability of R3, a mobile data collection and collaboration app customized for the missions of reconnaissance, response and recovery. R3 is available for immediate download in the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) GEOINT App Store.

“R3 enhances situational awareness, search and rescue, damage assessments and recovery efforts,” says Scott Lee, director of Federal Programs at TerraGo. “It really gives users the best of both worlds with mobile technology that can go anywhere and will also work even when the network doesn't.”

Designed with a simplified user interface, R3 provides a robust standalone capability for a variety of field-based collection activities. Users can access custom basemaps from numerous GIS, map, and imagery sources including GeoPDF, ArcGIS, USGS, and GXP, while collecting and exchanging location-tagged notes using smart forms, photos, videos and audio files.

Pre-loaded forms are available for structured assessments, and users can connect to a secure server to create unique mission packages and enable synchronous collaboration. R3 supports important standards like OGC GeoPackage interoperability and sharing geospatial assets among mission partners.

Registered GEOINT App Store users can download TerraGo R3 for iOS here. The Android version is complete and will be coming soon.
