Governments spend millions of dollars on managing GIS information - from acquiring it, to accessing it, to storing it. Much of this GIS information is hard-wired into information silos, or GIS projects where it gets trapped, making it difficult, if not impossible to access, and even harder for field and non-technical users to leverage. Acrobat 9 provides a platform- and application-independent solution to this problem. With simple to use tools for creating geospatial PDF documents from professional GIS software, and extremely simple and intuitive workflows using Acrobat 9 for analysis and markup in the field, it is now possible to reliably communicate geospatial information and mapping capabilities to anyone, regardless of their GIS expertise.
Overview: Free 60-min eSeminar with live Q&A
Date : Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Time: 10-11am US Pacific (1-2pm US Eastern)
Free Registration: http://www.acrobatusers.com/events/1427/geospatial-and-mapping
What you will learn:
- How GIS professionals can create full-featured map layouts with attributes, labels and layers in ESRI's ArcMap and use TerraGo Publisher to export them to a geo-registered, portable PDF.
- Ways to use these PDF maps in the field, including querying the spatial data (e.g. find coordinates of a location or accurately measure distance, perimeter and area) and creating spatially intelligent markup using the tools in Acrobat 9.
- How GIS staff in the office can roll field markups within a PDF map back into the enterprise quickly and efficiently.
Who should attend?
Governemnt GIS professionals and Non-GIS users who make use of mapping information.
Share geospatial and mapping data within and across agencies to users who may not be familiar with the use of GIS applications and may or may not have immediate access to the Internet. This includes public works, street maintenance, public planning, property assessment, emergency response, voter registration, construction, etc.
