ATLANTA, 7 April 2008. TerraGo Technologies, a provider of geospatial data distribution and collaboration solutions, announces that the United States Marine Corps (USMC) has implemented its GeoPDF Toolbar, an advanced geospatial mapping technology, across 65,000 standard desktop environments.

This technology provides U.S. Marines throughout the USMC with GIS viewing functionality and advanced geospatial intelligence capabilities, allowing users to extend maps, imagery, and attribute data to virtually any computer, making extensive geospatial intelligence available in a portable, transferable and easy-to-use format.

An approved Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enterprise solution, the GeoPDF geospatial data distribution and collaboration configuration leverages the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) to give users mapping functionality and capabilities via Adobe Reader. The GeoPDF Toolbar is deployed across the Navy-Marine Corps Internet (NMCI) platform.

The GeoPDF Toolbar turns the free Adobe Reader into a powerful geospatial application that give users the ability to view, manipulate, and update mapping data while leveraging Adobe collaboration capabilities to share information with others in the field and at home base.
