Portable PDF Maps Free Web Seminar

TerraGo Technologies is gearing up for a free webcast on its map2pdf product on May 18th, 2006. I've used the software in trial version and its one of the best concepts to produce portable maps I have seen. Map2pdf creates PDF documents of your GIS data, complete with attributes, lat & long, and allows you to turn on and off separate layers. This enables you to share maps across the organization without using up valuable ArcGIS Desktop licenses, or when you are disconnected from a floating network key.

Register here for the seminar.

Geographic Imager adds geospatial tools to Adobe Photoshop to allow for manipulating, editing, reproject, and work with geotiffs. Looks like an excellent way to enahnce those aerial photos for special studies. The extention is $599, but there are free trials available for download.
