Adobe eSeminar: Break down GIS information silos using Acrobat 9

Reliably communicate geospatial information and mapping capabilities to anyone, regardless of their GIS expertise (July 22, 2009)
DMN Newswire--2009-7-22--Join the Adobe Acrobat User Community and presenter Tomas Lopes from Farallon Geographics ( to learn how easy it is for GIS professionals in government or business, to share geospatial information and facilitate data maintenance workflows with individuals in the field by combining Acrobat 9 with professional desktop GIS software.

Overview    Free 60-min Acrobat 9 Geospatial eSeminar with live Q&A
Date    Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Time    10-11am US Pacific (1-2pm US Eastern)
Free Registration

Geospatial and mapping data is critical to decision making, asset management, and resource allocation at all levels of business and government. However traditional GIS tools are too expensive, too technical and too time-consuming for use by field staff and non-GIS users. 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.

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?
GIS professionals and Non-GIS users who make use of mapping information

For Federal, State & Local Governments
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.

For Utilities
Provide field workers with up-to-date details on infrastructure, outages and current conditions for faster response times and more efficient management and maintenance of infrastructure.

For Business
Provide non-GIS users with location information for routing & logistics of inventory, commercial real estate feasibility & planning, sales territories and demographics, etc.
