The TerraGo product line is known as MAP2PDF, and is available in multiple versions for major GIS applications and Adobe Acrobat(R) 7.0 software.

‘TerraGo’s products give us the ability to share a wealth of valuable geospatial data and related information with our staff as well as our clients,’ says David W. Baraniak, P.E., president, HRG Technology Group and past president of the Geospatial Information and Technology Association (GITA). ‘Since MAP2PDF generates PDF files automatically and leverages Adobe’s popular format, just about everyone with free access to their tools can use the product right on their desktop. That greatly simplifies the process of making GIS data available and usable for both novice and professional mapping users.’

MAP2PDF versions are available for download from the TerraGo Technologies company store at, with pricing for commercial version starting at $395.
