U.S. Marine Corps officers wanted to help their personnel use and share digital maps online, so they turned to TerraGo Technologies in Atlanta. Marine Corps officials have deployed the TerraGo Technologies GeoPDF Toolbar advanced geospatial mapping technology across 65,000 standard desktop environments. The solution provides geographic information systems (GIS) viewing and geospatial intelligence. Users can deliver maps, imagery, and attribute data to virtually any computer, making extensive geospatial intelligence available in a portable, transferable format. GeoPDF uses the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), enabling Marines to view, manipulate, update, and collaborate on mapping data capabilities using the free Adobe Reader. The GeoPDF Toolbar is an approved Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enterprise solution, and it is deployed across the Navy-Marine Corps Internet (NMCI) platform.
