Colorado Springs, Colo.-John Copple, CEO of Sanborn, an industry leader in geospatial solutions based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is pleased to announce a new solution to simplify access to and distribution of geographic data with the Sanborn GEOBOOK® Author software product.

The GEOBOOK Author framework provides a flexible, cost-effective solution that makes it easy to publish and distribute geospatial data. Based on Sanborn’s GEOBOOK application, the Author software provides the capability to quickly build GEOBOOKs by embedding interactive maps, text documents, images, and other data visualization controls.

The company’s GEOBOOK Author software will be featured at the ESRI International User Group conference in San Diego, alongside a number of innovative Sanborn geospatial product solutions.

This product reaffirms Sanborn’s commitment to simplifying data distribution tools while adding value to customers’ current available resources. By removing format and platform compatibility challenges in ways that are transparent to the user, the GEOBOOK Author combines GIS data with imagery and documentation to provide dynamic output for multiple disciplines to use and understand.

 “Because there are no licensing fees for published GEOBOOKs, the Author is an ideal medium for distributing reports and plans to other agencies, departments, customers or the public,” comments Jim Schriever, vice president, Sanborn solutions. “GEOBOOK Author makes sharing GIS data possible without employing complex, costly third-party GIS licensing or applications. Anyone can use a published GEOBOOK with no GIS training required.”
